WipEout Franchise Might Not be Dead, “WipEout’s Passion Will Live on”

Despite the recent closure of WipEout developer Sony Liverpool, it appears Sony still has plans to support the franchise and community for the time being. Just yesterday, the official twitter account for the series posted “WE. ARE. ALIVE.” and now today, the WipEout Facebook page is providing more information.

According to the latest post on the page:

Good afternoon Pilots

As you may be aware; Studio Liverpool shut its doors on the 22nd of August 2012.

It was a very sad day- the end of an era and will never be forgotten. While we wait for news on the future of WipEout, Online play will continue to be supported and there will be plenty of WipEout community events, giveaways and goodies to look forward to!

WipEout’s passion will live on – Together we are stronger and together we will keep WipEout alive.

WE ♥ WO!
