We know that PlayStation studios are very busy, but not yet exactly what for some: the veil has just been lifted for PlayStation London Studio, an iconic firm that has always worked for Sony and is working on its “most ambitious project”.

Summary

  • A fantastic cooperative game from London
  • a pilot study
  • Guerrilla Games as an example

A fantastic cooperative game from London

It’s official : Therefore, PlayStation London Studio is working on an online action game, playable in cooperation. At the moment, the details are scarce: we do not have a name or a trailer yet, but already a first concept art to learn, to find below. And also, an important element: the context will be planted in a London that is both modern and fantastical, with supporting dragons.

Stuart Whyte, co-head of the studio, told Gameindustry.biz:

With this project, we really wanted to explore new avenues and challenge ourselves. We really wanted to try something a little different, and I think this new project really channels our courage and also allows us to push ourselves towards curiosity. It’s exciting, really.

Innovation will always be at the heart of what we do. If you look at our background and the titles we’ve done, there are a lot of “firsts” out there. And continue.

a pilot study

So a little reminder of the facts is in order: PlayStation London Studios isn’t just anyone in the gaming landscape. It was founded in 1993 and is one of Sony’s largest studios: in particular, it has a large research and development district.

We remember The Getaway in particular, but also more experimental titles that have been talked about a lot: EyeToy, SingStar, PlayStation Home, EyePet, Wonderbook… His CV is as long as the arm and imposing. Recently, the firm got involved in the PlayStation VR, signing in particular the very explosive Blood & Truth.

But with this new game, no camera, no microphone, no VR headset required – you’ll need a console and controller, just like a traditional game. Traditional, really? As the studio’s thought leader mentioned above, innovation will be required.

Tara Saunders, co-director of the company, raises the excitement:

Stuart Whyte and Tara Saunders

It is our most ambitious game to date. We’re going to take all that DNA dedicated to innovation and apply it to this cooperative online fighting game.

(In our concept art) you see a fantastic, modern London. Our main theme is to bring fantastic and magical elements and cross them with worlds that we know.

Guerrilla Games as an example

Stuart Whyte remarkably confessed to talking to Guerrilla Gamesthat will have helped him (and his team) in particular to make this transition to a game that has nothing to do with his previous ones:

The idea of ​​the game was born from an ideation process that involved the entire team. We have created a very large information document, but with a lot of latitude and scope. And the team came up with a lot of ideas. We were inspired by the process by talking to our colleagues at Guerrilla Games. We were fascinated by how they transitioned from Killzone to Horizon: Zero Dawn, and that’s exactly the process they went through.

This exclusive will use the Soho Engine, the studio’s in-house engine, and will be cut entirely and specifically for PlayStation 5. On the other hand, there is no exit window at the moment, so be patient.

Blood & Truth, PSVR excluded released in 2019
