ony has closed one of the UK's oldest video game studios following a review of its operations. Sony Liverpool employed about 100 workers. It dated back to 1984 when it was known as Psygnosis. The Japanese company bought it in 1993.
The developer's early titles included Lemmings for the Atari ST, and Shadow of the Beast for the Commodore Amiga.

It's a shame as it was Shadow of the Beast that wowed me to move from 8bit Spectrum to 16bit Amiga.
