Let's talk about the Sony gamedev studios and the games published or developed by them, and share and discuss here some small news, rumors or leaks that may appear about them! Some ideas of topics we can discuss here about SIE games:
  • Bungie said they plan to release "at least" (so probably more than) one new IP before 2025. When do you think they'll announce it?
  • When do you think they'll show gameplay of TLOU remake or Spider-Man 2, and the release date of GoWR?
  • When do you think GoWR is going to be released?
  • Sony plans to release 2 GaaS this fiscal year, and seems it isn't going to be released on PC at least this fiscal year. Which ones do you think they are (pro-tip: they aren't MLB and GT7)
  • Did you play one of their games recently and want to share some feedback and opinions about it?
  • Are you hyped about their upcoming games or want to share some minor news about them? Do it here!
  • Do you want them to revive a classic PS Studios IP? I'd love to see brand new Wipeout and Motorstorm games and an Uncharted 5 with Nathan Drake as main protagonist (where they don't retire or kill their white straight male protagonist)
We can also talk here about SIE and their strategy specially regarding future game releases:
  • When do you think SIE is going to announce their next acquisition? Who do you think they will acquire and who would you like them to acquire?
  • When do you think they are going to have their next SoP or PlayStation Showcase focused on first party stuff and what do you think it's going to be its content?
  • They'll invest more in non-GaaS games than before, but they are also expanding to multiplayer and GaaS because these types of games generate over half of the revenue of the market. Do you like this or would prefer them to continue focusing non single player non GaaS games?
  • They'll also release more console games than ever before, but will release PC ports and will expand to mobile bringing some of their IPs there with some partnerts and also publish buotique mobile games from other partners. Do you like this approach and think it makes sense because PC and mobile have over half of the players and revenue of the market or are you in the #team @Bryank75 ?
  • What do you think about the movies or movie shows they are working on using SIE games? Are you looking forward to some of them? Would you like them to do a movie, tv series or anime of some game? I'd love to see a Wipeout anime.

Man, GoWR release date has got to be just around the corner, unless it's been delayed to 2023...
Considering they have TLOU remake for September and Forspoken for October, I think GoWR it will be released in November and that until recently was planned for September.

There are tons of hints leading to think it will be released in 2022. From age rating in Korea, to the placeholder date of its PSN store, to the many recent comments from its devs in social media saying it's almost done and that they are working on the release party, to game merchandising planned to be released in September, to the reason of delaying it from 2021 to 2022 being unrelated to game development (the main actor got injured, required many months to recover and they waited for him instead of replacing him).

November would be pretty epic.

Big holiday game, coupled with influx of PS5 stock :

We did have all the trackers known to man at one point in the Discord, But no one was using it and it was removed.

A few days ago Firesprite moved to a new office that was like 20 times bigger than their previous one. Now PS Studios Malaysia (a support team) now has a new office space:

Specifically about Bungie and Destiny universe, I was watching this the other day.

This game is selling gangbusters, which bodes well for a sequel - a sequel that shouldn't be in question because of the story anyway...

I'm not a fan of the PC releases but oh god please sony avoid the mobile market at all costs. I do not need watered down versions of games that could be great. Unless of course they make another portable device, leaving the entirety of that market to Nintendo is stupidity and instead of trying to fill Jim's pockets with the PC market they should make something for their comunity like a portable console with dedicated games for that console.

  • When do you think SIE is going to announce their next acquisition? Who do you think they will acquire and who would you like them to acquire?

Konami, just fuck Konami for real but imagine if sony got them, or at least their IPs, there are so many fantastic PS1 games that konami made and belong in playstation and could be remade into something new.

So what’s next for the Grier brothers? “We’ve talked a lot about it and I think as a first time developer we learned so much on this project and it was really telling when the game came out. The process, the anticipation, the excitement—we couldn’t have asked for more, but we still have that feeling like we could do this better,” said Josh. “We can grow and tell better stories, create better experiences just from our recent learnings. Having one success under our belt has given us great momentum going into the next one.”

It is ultra weird to see this posted in the SIE blog and not in the PS blog. Makes me think SIE could buy them soon, or at least give them a 2nd party game.
Its been real interesting over the last 7+ months with lots of possible hints that Sony has acquired them or in the process of and a lot of it originated from that Sony 2021 marketing video

What? First the Kena guys appear in the SIE blog and now in a Sony (not PS Studios, not SIE: Sony) video reel? In theory Sony didn't even publish the game. I'd bet they bought them.
