Biggest hit: WipEout
Though it was eventually rebranded, SCE Studio Liverpool started its corporate life as Psygnosis. While they might be best known for the influential WipEout racing franchise, there are a number of lesser known facts about Psygnosis that are certainly worth noting.
For example, Psygnosis published the Lemmings franchise back in the day, and even helped create the various games played in the short-lived television show Nick Arcade. These are the kinds of things fans like to remember.
What isn’t as fun to remember is the fact that Sony actually stopped production at Liverpool back in 2010 and even mentioned the dreaded “restructuring” word. The majority of the studio’s work has been WipEout since 2006, with only a single Formula One title breaking up the run.
WipEout 2048, their last effort, for the PlayStation Vita is essentially just… WipEout. For Vita.
