A new studio has been founded by two of the most important figures in the history of Call of Duty. Deviation Games was announced at Summer Game Fest by former Treyarch employees Dave Anthony and Jason Blundell.
A new IP is also under development for Sony, though the project has not yet been revealed. The developer’s pedigree suggests that you can expect a first-person shooter.
In a post over on the PlayStation Blog, Anthony wrote, “We’re looking to draw on what we’ve learned over our collective decades making games, but we’re also aiming to make something that’s completely new for you.” “We’re focusing on making a big, action-packed game with a high degree of energy.”
Sony has also acquired Deviation Games. In March 2018, Sony announced that it was backing an original PlayStation game developed by Haven, a studio founded by former Ubisoft and Stadia producer Jade Raymond.
