Eight Days and The Getaway 'on hold'
Eight Days and The Getaway were both under the wing of SCEWWS.
It seems that the new boss of the WWS division, Shuhei Yoshida, has been wielding a not inconsiderable axe and has decided he needs his resources allocated elsewhere, focusing on other titles. Here's the official word:
"It has been agreed that production of both 8 Days and The Getaway will cease immediately due to the redistribution of resources and budget. This decision was made following an internal review of all games and it was deemed that with the incredibly strong list of exclusive first party titles coming up both this year and in the near future, resource should be reallocated to enhance those projects closer to completion. WWS has a reputation for innovative and entertaining games, with titles such as LittleBigPlanet, SingStar, Buzz, EyeToy and Eye of Judgement, and will continue to push the boundaries on all PlayStation platforms."Personally, The Getaway didn't really get me excited, but Eight Days always looked highly promising. Maybe one, or both, of these titles will be picked up again in the future...
