Is the WipEout series still racing on?
Sony has confirmed the series will race on and that they will be working with members from Sony Liverpool after the WipEout Twitter and Facebook pages were updated saying that we can help keep the passion alive.
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.
