Sony Bought Haven Studio: Haven Studios is developing its first new IP for the PlayStation to provide a AAA multiplayer experience.
Sony has announced the purchase of a new Canadian studio. Jade Raymond, the co-creator of Assassin’s Creed and the previous head of Stadia Games, is at the helm of Haven Entertainment Studios. The Studio, which was founded a year ago, intends to begin developing new PlayStation IPs.
Haven Studios has revealed that their goal to release their first new IP for PlayStation would give a AAA multiplayer experience. This game’s universe will be an “evolving world focused on freedom, thrill, and playfulness”.
Sony’s Hermen Hulst stated in a statement, “We began working with Jade and her team in early 2021 when they were on the brink of announcing the formation of Haven Studios. From their first pitch, we were inspired by Haven’s vision for creating a modern multiplayer experience that brings gamers together in positive and meaningful ways. We were confident in their creative and technical expertise to deliver on such an ambitious project and were thrilled to invest in their journey developing a new, original IP for PlayStation.”
Haven Studios’ CEO and Founder, Jade Raymond, stated, “Today, the Haven team begins a new phase of our journey, as part of the PlayStation Studios family. Working with Hermen, Connie Booth and the team at PlayStation over the past year has been a career highlight. SIE is a supportive partner that truly understands the creative process and what it takes to make a blockbuster AAA game. They have empowered and encouraged us to bring our bold vision to life and make our dreams come true and we could not be more thrilled about this opportunity to strengthen our partnership.”
Haven Studios says that by joining Sony’s studios, it will be able to collaborate with some of the world’s most known development teams, including Guerrilla, Naughty Dog, Media Molecule, and Insomniac Games.
For the time being, there is no indication of the IP that the business is developing for the Sony PlayStation. We only know that it is a multiplayer game with an open universe. Sony Bought Haven Studio.
