During a Q & A segment at the EGX event, the President of Sony's worldwide studios commented on the prospect of revisiting the much-loved futuristic racing series Wipeout.
Shuhei Yoshida, when asked whether Wipeout would even return, answered “Never say never”. "There are many IPs that we kind of stopped iterating with new games. One of the reasons is we always love to work on new IP. From my standpoint I try to balance the number of games in a franchise. In the future there might be a chance to come back to a game like Wipeout." said Youshida.
The Wipeout series was developed by SCE Studio Liverpool, who were sadly shut down back in 2012 so that Sony could focus on other new projects from different Studios. Supposedly, Studio Liverpool were working on a new Wipeout game for the Playstation 4 at the time of their closure.
All may not be lost though, and according to these recent comments from Sony, we may yet be able to play a new Wipeout game on our Playstation 4 consoles at some point. We're keeping our fingers firmly crossed here at TeamVVV as we are massive Wipeout fans.
