Studio Liverpool may have closed, but the Wipeout franchise may still have some gas in the tank.

The official Wipeout 2048 Facebook page was updated this morning with the following message:

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.

This follows a post on the game’s Facebook and Twitter accounts last night that simply read “WE. ARE. ALIVE.”

Studio Liverpool was closed by Sony on August 22, although the developers retained the rights to the Wipeout franchise.
