Sony was interested in having Oddworld star Abe included in the roster of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale but Superbot hasn’t been in touch, says Oddworld Inhabitants’ Stewart Gilray.

"I was over at Sony America and they were definitely up for it, but the developer hasn't gotten back to us," said the development director.

"We've been trying to get in touch with them since May and can't work out if they've fixed their character line-up for the release version or if they're simply not interested!"

Gilray would "absolutely be interested" in securing at least a DLC spot for the Oddworld hero.

"We'd love to get him in the game. We've already been talking about the moves he could have like possessing Kratos and beating the shit out of everyone... I guess they're busy and we're busy."
