Sony has reportedly closed the doors of the studio behind the long-running PlayStation franchise SOCOM.

A statement from “Sony representatives” posted by Game Informer says the publisher has shut down Zipper Interactive, which has proximately 80 employees.

Sony Computer Entertainment can confirm the closure of Zipper Interactive, a Seattle-based internal game development studio that has been part of the global development operation of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS).

The closure is a result of a normal cycle of resource re-alignment within SCE WWS. Zipper has completed all work associated with its most recent project, Unit 13 for PlayStation Vita. Zipper titles MAG, SOCOM 4 and Unit 13 will continue to be supported, including the new Daily Challenges in Unit 13.

Along with SOCOM, a tactical-based military shooter, Zipper also worked on first-person shooter MAG and the recently released Unit 13 for PlayStation Vita.

Sony says they will continue to offer support for Unit 13, MAG and SOCOM 4, which launched last April.
