Representatives from Californian developer Read At Dawn have confirmed that the company is to end development on the PSP format, following critical and commercial success with titles such as Daxter
and God of War: Chains of Olympus
The company's future plans were first outlined in March, with confirmation coming on the company's website
with the message, "With Chains of Olympus
going Gold in Japan, we're now officially done with PSP development."
"So today we sent all our devkits back and seeing all these boxes ready to be picked up definitely marks the end of an era here at Ready At Dawn," continued the statement. "Can't wait to show you guys what we have in store."
Comprised of a number of former employees of Naughty Dog and Blizzard Entertainment, the company's only non-PSP title thus far has been the Wii version of Capcom and Clover's Okami
The company has confirmed nothing of its future plans, beyond the fact that there will be no PlayStation 2 ports of either PSP title, unlike many other prominent Western PSP exclusives. The company has been a staunch supporter of the PSP format in the past, even going as far as criticizing the technical efforts of other PSP developers.
