The suspicions of critics of Sony's live service initiative were confirmed recently, as the platform owner struggles to get its projects off the ground. While the excellent Helldivers 2 has been a huge success, Naughty Dog's standalone adaptation of The Last of Us has been unceremoniously cancelled, while Firesprite's upcoming Twisted Metal reboot has recently been shut down and the London studio has been shut down entirely.
