Another addition to the PlayStation studio family. Someone has been very busy these past few months! After buying Housemarque (Returnal) and PC port specialist Nixxes Software (Tomb Raider, Thief, Deus Ex), Hermen Hulst added more today.
And no, they are not Bluepoint Games. When will Sony save this announcement? The newest addition to the PlayStation family is called fire blade. The Liverpool studio was recently responsible for The Playroom, The Persistence and The Playroom VR, among others. It is the 14th studio in the PlayStation family.
“Firesprite is a creative and ambitious studio that uses a lot of talent to create extraordinary experiences that demonstrate the full potential of our hardware,” says Hermen Hulst im PlayStation blog.
“We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on…and we’re just getting started,” said Graeme Ankers, MD at Firesprite. We are excited. Maybe we’ll find out tomorrow in the PlayStation Showcase?
In July, Hermen Hulst commented on the impression of the “arms race” with Xbox. But that is by no means, as he confirmed. Sony would rather have to deal with very targeted acquisitions. “We are very selective with the developers we hire,” Hulst said at the time.
