PlayStation London Studios, the in-house developer that for the last two decades has been known for creating games for PlayStation peripherals like the EyeToy and the PlayStation VR headset, is leaving virtual reality behind for its next project.
According to PlayStation London Studios co-head Stuart Whyte in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz on Thursday, the developer’s first headless project in over a decade will be an online cooperative combat game set in a fantasy London, designed specifically for PlayStation. 5.
“We’re proud of the history and innovation we’ve done over the years, supporting all kinds of PlayStation technology,” Whyte said in the interview. “With this project, we really wanted to explore new avenues and set ourselves new challenges.”
Whyte said the game will be based on the Soho Engine, the studio’s proprietary in-house technology, citing Horizon: Zero Dawn Guerrilla Games, PlayStation’s own developer and fellow developer, for inspiration. “We have the inspiration [for the ideation process] speaking with our colleagues at Guerrilla Games,” Whyte told GamesIndustry.biz. “We were fascinated by how they went from Killzone to Horizon: Zero Dawnand this was the exact process they went through.”
The currently untitled cooperative fantasy game is in development and does not yet have a release date.
