PlayStation’s PixelOpus Studio To Cease Operations

Sony’s in-house PixelOpus studio has announced that it is closing down, marking the end of an adventurous journey for the small team. PixelOpus is the studio behind games like Concrete Genie and Entwined, which have gained millions of fans around the world. The studio announced the development on Twitter, thanking fans for their continued support and patronage.

PixelOpus’ Journey

The formation of PixelOpus was revealed in 2014 by Sony, just before E3. The studio was founded by Carnegie Mellon University and San Jose State University students working on game prototypes for PlayStation Vita. Its first game was Entwined, which was launched on PS4 before coming to PS3 and Vita. The studio also worked on Concrete Genie for PlayStation 4.

Unclear Future

While there was talk in 2021 of PixelOpus working on a PS5 game in collaboration with Sony Pictures, nothing was ever officially announced despite a job listing that suggested the game was being created using the Unreal Engine 5. The announcement of the studio’s closure suggests the project was likely cancelled.

The End of the Road

In a statement released on Twitter, PixelOpus announced the end of its adventure. The tweet said, “Dear friends, our PixelOpus adventure has come to an end. As we look to new futures, we wanted to say a heartfelt thank you to the millions of passionate players who have supported us, and our mission to make beautiful, imaginative games with heart. We are so grateful!”

The demise of this small Sony team marks a sad day for its fans, who appreciated the heart and soul poured into games like Concrete Genie and Entwined. Despite the uncertainty of the future of PixelOpus projects, fans of the games will be eagerly waiting to see if the small team can find a new home and start on a new adventure.
