Really sad news. WipEout is one of my favourite racing franchises, and I really enjoyed both WipEout HD and 2048. Studio Liverpool was always really good with offering fair prices and deals on their track packs. I remember back in the days of WipEout Pure on the PSP, they just gave away a bunch of extra tracks for free on their website, which is an act that would be virtually unthinkable in today's industry. Then with 2048, they made all of their HD/Fury tracks free for download if you already owned those games on the PS3. Obviously I don't have the ability to peer into the souls of the developers, but they always struck me as the kind of people who care about their fans and don't just want to wring them for cash.
Here's hoping that the team members who end up getting released will find new jobs soon.
