Japan Studio was deleted from its list of studios on the PlayStation official site. Studio is not mentioned anymore. Included on the official website of the PlayStation.
Japan Studio's list of Sony's playstation studios has now officially been deleted.
All studios of Sony are featured on the PlayStation website, including Insomniac games, Naughty Dog and Guerrilla.
Last month, the page named Japan Studio as the long-standing talent behind some of the most distinctive titles of the PlayStation. This is noted by PashSquare and is documenting the internet archive.
But Japan Studio is not featured on this website anymore. Team Asobi, the team behind Astro's Playroom's preinstalled PS5 game, took its place.
On 1 April Sony restructured Japan Studio as a "new organisation." As VGC disclosed exclusively in February, a significant majority of development employees was discontinued.
The famous developer behind Ape Escape, Gravity Rush and Knack saw their great majority of its development staff resign after their annual contracts were not renewed ahead of the next financial year that begins on April 1.
There will be locations and business employees and Team Asobi will remain in operation within Sony Japan as a different studio.
Some were joined by Team Asobi at the Japan Studio, while others came in after Silent Hill and Gravity Rush, Keiichiro Toyama, who left for Japan Studio last year in his own studio, Bokeh.
Sony Japan Studio has simply been inadequately lucrative in recent years, according to individuals close to the issue. The developer aimed to make the first attractive Japanese market games, hoping that later on they will have global appeal, whereas PlayStation seeks international blockbusters like those made by competitor studios.
