PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale and the title's forthcoming DLC releases will continue to be fully supported by Santa Monica Studio.While it is unknown as to how this will affect the independent studio in the long run, a statement by David Yang seemed cheerful and confident, saying that the studio will continue "working on projects that reflect our passion for games."

We are very excited about beginning the next chapter of our future and invite all of our fans and supporters to follow our journey.The studio also revealed to Kotaku that no layoffs are currently planned, however "it is unlikely we can continue with our current work force for an extended period of time."
Kat graces PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale with her presence, as an up-close melee fighter who utilizes her ability to manipulate gravity to turn the tide in battle. Players who enjoyed Gravity Rush on PS Vita know that Kat loves to bend gravity to allow her to dash, slide, and fly from one place to another, and her All-Stars incarnation is no exception. Those who enjoy AP burst combos and varied mobility will definitely gravitate towards Kat.Both of these new characters will be available for free for the first two weeks of their launch, but will go on sale afterwards so be quick. Sony has also unveiled the newest level, Fearless — a mash-up between Heavenly Sword and Wipeout — will also be available to purchase in February.
Emmett Graves from Starhawk joins the fray! He brings his signature “Build & Battle” style from Starhawk, calling down different structures to aid him in battle, including Rift Extractors for AP and Flak Turrets that fire at will. Aside from his default rifle and pistol, Emmett can also call for additional weaponry in the form of shotgun and rocket launcher loadouts, allowing him to adapt to any situation. These loadouts will also change his level 1 super, giving him a total of five supers to choose from!
