Rumor: MotorStorm dev to take over WipEout [Update]

Evolution Studios the new home of Sony's futuristic racer?

Sony’s WipEout franchise, which was once in the hands of the now-closed SCE Studio Liverpool, has been handed to MotorStorm developer Evolution Studios, according to an MCV report

This morning, a tweet from the official WipEout 2048 Twitter account – which read “WE. ARE. ALIVE.” – suggested Studio Liverpool was rising for a resurrection. However, an update posted on the game’s Facebook later seemed to clarify the update was in reference to the WipEout franchise, rather than the studio itself.

We’ll shoot Sony an e-mail.

Update 5:53 p.m.: Sony has said it does not comment on rumors and speculation.
