Sony has added a number of teams to bolster its PlayStation Studios lineup in recent years, but it looks like it’s not losing another one. First party studio PixelOpus, best known for 2019 PS4 action-adventure title Concrete Genie, is shutting down.

The studio made the announcement on Twitter, writing, “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.”

The California-based studio was founded in 2014, and in the same year, it released rhythm title Entwined for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. Following the launch of Concrete Genie, the studio confirmed in 2021 that it was staffing up to work on “an exciting new PlayStation 5 title”.

Sony has yet to officially announce the studio’s closure, so there’s no word yet on whether its entire team has been laid off, or whether the project it was working on will be moved to a different developer.
