I haven’t been writing news about studio purchases for a while, luckily Sony came to my rescue, we made up for the deficiency 🙂 According to the statement made by Sony, Firesprite joined PlayStation Studios.
In the statement shared with the signature of PlayStation Studios Leader Hermen Hulst on PlayStation Blog; Firesprite, which previously collaborated on games such as The Playroom and The Playroom VR, is announced to be included in the Playstation Studios family as the 14th studio.
In the same announcement, the explanations of the Firesprite team were also included, and Firesprite also shared a statement about the bet on its own site. It is mentioned that they are pleased that the studio, which was established in 2012 and located in Liverpool, has become a member of the PlayStation family. Previously run in partnership with SIE, The Playroom, The PlayRoom VR and Run Sackboy! While they state that they are pleased to be involved in projects such as Run, they also underline the freedom that PlayStation has given them to develop their own IP, The Persistence. They noted that they are excited to undertake valuable projects under this roof in the upcoming period.
The fact that Firesprite is more focused on VR games raises the possibility that they will focus on PS VR related games in the coming period. However, it is not necessarily possible, they can probably take different forms. Firesprite’s statement ended with “You will hear new things from us very soon”. Let’s see how soon these announcements will come and what they will announce to us, we are following.
