Sony ‘saddened’ by Insomniac switch

Sony was told back in 2008 that Insomniac Games wanted to break away from the platform holder, the company has revealed.

Now two years later, and a few weeks after EA’s deal with Insomniac went public, a high-profile Sony executive tells Develop he was personally saddened by the studio’s switch.

”We grew up together” said Shuhei Yoshida, the head of Sony Worldwide Studios. Insomniac’s first tile was on our first platform. They want to reach the people they haven’t been able to so it was sad to hear a couple of years ago what their intent was, but as we are growing, Insomniac is growing too."

Develop has the full story.
