After 17 years, Sony closes SOCOM studio Zipper Interactive – with a tweet

The studio that created the SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALS video games has shut down after 17 years. In a tweet, Zipper Interactive, a Redmond, Wash.-based console game studio owned by Sony, announced that it had shut down. “After 17 years it’s time to head off into the sunset. A sincere thank you to all of our fans for everything you’ve done for us.

We need this to understand how you use our service - you can take it out if you like. Cheers, your Blogspire team.

This is breaking up with someone over a txt message.  Not the best way to end things.  I’d be pretty upset if they did this to a game like Black Ops.  But I guess its all thanks to how much money the game generates for the makers to keep people around for it.
