The Twitter post read “WE. ARE. ALIVE.” and was accompanied by the image below:

The Facebook page was later updated to shed some light on the vagueness of the Twitter message, stating,

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!

Although it sounds as if the Sony Liverpool team will remain closed, it’s nice to hear that some of the employees will be relocated and that the WipEout series will be supported, continuing to amaze us with its low gravity, high-speed, thrilling races.
