Everybody's Gone to the Rapture PS4 PlayStation 4

The studio behind the PS4 walking simulator Everybody's Gone to the Rapture has been purchased by Sumo Digital. The Chinese Room, which only consists of its co-founders Dan Pinchbeck and Jessica Curry after last year's layoffs, will become a new studio within the group, which is going through a period of growth.

Pinchbeck will stay on at The Chinese Room and is reportedly working on new concepts, while Curry will continue to operate as an independent composer. As far as precisely what the developer will be making next is not known, but we'd expect that its next game won't be shown off for a while.

Meanwhile, Sumo Digital has been keeping itself very busy with projects from Team Sonic Racing to the elusive Dead Island 2, as well as purchasing CCP Games' Newcastle studio.
