Bad news gamers! If you love Sony’s brawler game, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, you will be disappointed to learn that the game will no longer be receiving anymore DLCs in the future! Of course this does not mean that the game has been abandoned, it’s just that at least for the foreseeable future, don’t expect to see the game updated with new content. This was confirmed by Sony Santa Monica via a posted on the game’s official forums, which reads:
PlayStation All-Stars Fans,
Thank you for your continued support of PlayStation All-Stars and for keeping the community thriving. At this time we have no plans to release new content for PlayStation All-Stars.
While we considered many characters during development and even created concept art for a number of characters and environments that were being explored during the game’s development phase, including Dart, we were not able to incorporate all of them into the final game. We will continue to be committed to supporting the PlayStation All-Stars online community through online match-making and will ensure server stability.
We appreciate all of your support and passion for PlayStation All-Stars. Our hats off to the team at SuperBot for creating an incredible fighting game, and to you for keeping the online mayhem running strong.

The game has done pretty well for itself and has solver over 1 million copies, but apparently this fell short of Sony’s expectations which might explain why the company has decided not to use its resources to develop additional content for the game. There’s no telling if Sony will ever create a sequel to the game, but in the meantime if you love the game, you will just have to play it as it is for now. So, anyone else disappointed by this piece of news? In the meantime PlayStation Euphoria has posted a couple of images of what appears to be a possible new level in a future DLC, which we guess has since been cancelled.
