SCE Studio Liverpool: “We are alive” [Update]

WipEout developer coming back from the dead?

Back in August, Sony shuttered its Liverpool studio, the developer behind the WipEout franchise. But a tweet sent out today through the official twitter for PlayStation Vita’s WipEout 2048 may signal otherwise.

“WE. ARE. ALIVE,” reads the update, which included the above photo as an attachment.

Is Liverpool back?

Update 2:50 p.m.: The following message has been posted on the official WipEout 2048 Facebook page:

Good afternoon Pilots

As you may be aware; Studio Liverpool shut its doors on the 22nd of August 2012.

It was a very sad day- the end of an era and will never be forgotten. While we wait for news on the future of WipEout, Online play will continue to be supported and there will be plenty of WipEout community events, giveaways and goodies to look forward to!

WipEout’s passion will live on – Together we are stronger and together we will keep WipEout alive.

WE ♥ WO!
