Last week, Sony announced it had signed a deal with Deviation Games to make a brand new PlayStation IP - the second such deal Sony has announced in recent months.
Its a studio with a good work force from other studios, but what are they creating?
Most likely a shooter considering their history. It's good to see developers band their money together and start making their own project, and get from under the publisher umbrella. It's a big risk especially if the game fails, but if the game takes off it's a huge reward.
As long as they don't start having stocks and have to bow to shareholders. That's when things go downhill again.
yeah, it must. They got many staiff for Treyarch and Bungie and other.
@phoenixwing: Worker co-ops FTW!
I think their new ip will fill the fps exclusive gap that Sony currently has, since resistance and killzone is on the back burner at the moment.
AoD Damn... I really miss the Mp of the 1st Resistance.... It was /, well still is in hindsight , one of my faves.
Well, they can have a go at challenging COD...they certainly have the expertise. But let's be honest, no one amongst us wants that. I want to see them create their passion game, something fresh, like Respawn did with Titanfall.
I'd love to see a straightforward shooter. No BR, no season passes, no "operators" or "specialists" that unbalance the game until you pay for them, no "progression system" that artificially locks guns behind mtx and/or grinding. Just a real, early 2000s style shooter with balanced classes that you play because its fun, not because of shoehorned RPG leveling. Of course, we won't get that, and I'm sure we'll get some combination of all the nonsense discussed above.
Try Halo lol pretty much only shooter that offer that. Which is why it's fanbase love it so much.....well one of many reasons. Fair equal balanced starts no BS
Yeah I was reading where Halo Infinite's multiplayer is getting back to its roots. I can't believe we're getting to a world where I might think Halo is the best multiplayer option. The problem is I want that type of game in something less bullet spongy. Like Battlefield 1942 basically.

Umm Halo is going live service so don’t know about this suggestion…..
@jeece thanks for reminding me of Warhawk & starhawk 😢
I miss that Sony so badly.
And 'Black'. All about the guns, the shooting and destruction. That game was so refreshing at the time!
Warhawk yes!! Starhawk im iffy on but i also felt the majority of its short comings where technical limitations of the ps3
I just want more FPS's like BioShock, Half-life or Wolfenstein. Atomic Heart looks really interesting along with the upcoming System Shock remake. The PS3 Era had tons of games like these. They really Drop the ball last Gen though. I just want more lengthy, single player FPS's with a decent story.
Deathloop looks like the closest thing you'll get on Playstation in the near future, and unfortunately it looks likely to be the last ever Arkane game on PlayStation systems.
Halo always been the best option. Try swat or breakout. Those Playlist have faster kill times. One thing that make Halo so great is that it has lots of Playlist. It has something for everyone
@chief I know halo is fun but it can’t compare to the adrenaline rush of Warhawk and specially starhawk with the build drop on command I can tell you how awesome it was but it would fail to convey the feeling of been on foot and having a tank and 2 guys attacking you , you dropping 2 automatic torrent for the tank and kill the 2 guys with a RPG then wack the tank with the 🔧 and destroy it, or destroying a airplane coming hot to kill your tank with one shot, or snipping 2guys with one shot trying to get on a tank or killing the whole enemy team with orbital strike on Warhawk. I could keep going on but unless you experienced it , it’s only words
Nah halo got that beat man nothing better than hijacking a ghost dodge a tanks missile jump off a ramp landing on the tank and planting a grenade and blowing it up. Then a banshee coming in to kill you and you pick up a Spartan laser and blow it to hell. Or picking up a sword with active camo and sneaking into a base and assassinate everyone in sight like a thief in the night
I agree and hope the same. If you don’t want battle royale or cross play riddled with cheaters the choices are slim these days. Hopefully they bring back SOCOM with a great campaign.
Unfortunately I'm afraid they'll just make a "me too" multiplayer offering that tries to be exactly like everything else already out there.
If this game that Deviation is making turns out to be good, maybe Sony could task them with making a new Socom game.
I would love to see a good realistic shooter. None of this running at 30 miles per hour jumping 3 feet in the air over and over while running jumping off roofs without getting hurt and crap like that.
While we're at it, no magical abilities after you get a certain number of kills or deaths in a row.
Enlisted is pretty decent and free to play on all platforms. Might want to check that out.
Thanks Digital. I'll give it a try.
Sony seems to be signing a lot of studios to do exclusives. Maybe this is their strategy since Sony in most cases will own the IP's
It is. They simply cannot get into a bidding war over studios with MS. MS will win a war of attrition every time. Sonys strategy of forming partnerships with these talented upstart studios along with established 3rd party developers is smart.
It's not always money. Some companies rather sell to Sony over Ms because of the track record. Look at insomniac it cost Sony only 250+ million which is way under market value. And having these IP's will help in future
Sony’s strategy to compete with Microsoft’s pocketbook seem to be locking down these developers for exclusive games. Hard to say if they will pay off because these studios are so new, but Sony has an eye for talent.
It’s Microsoft competing with Sony by buying big pubs/multiple studios at once. Sony is simply doing what they have always done ….. and what has always worked for them.
Exactly! When it comes to Xbox, so many fans have such a false sense of relevancy for their platform. Xbox isn’t a GLOBAL brand. Some people have trouble understanding this. Just a little random example that came to my mind: ''The PS5 REVEAL event was the most watched gaming livestream in Youtube history.''
I’ve never seen Sony announce so many studio partnerships in such a short amount of time. With this, Jade Raymond, and that multiplayer game It’s foolish to think this isn’t a direct response to Microsoft gobbling up all these studios.
@Ausbo Wrong. Sony has always partnered with many studios. It’s foolish to see this as anything but par for course.
@Ausbo "It’s foolish to think this isn’t a direct response to Microsoft gobbling up all these studios." So we going to ignore them last generation and up to now partnering up Bluepoint, Housemarque, Kojima Production, Ready at Dawn, FromSoftware, Supermassive, Lucid Games and so on. Not sure if you're trolling but Sony has done this for years. This is Nothing new and it's not about how many studios. It's about the quality of those games.
It is a gamble but a smart one. This really is their only way to compete.
I miss Zipper Interactive, MAG is still a game today forever ahead of the Competition that gamers just werent ready for yet, and cant he matched, even today. Im picky about my FPS games most times wont even bother with them, but MAG was innovative, unique compared to cookie cutter games like it, and a new take on online combat that sadly was too short lived..... Just like Evolution Studios with Drive Club, crying shame because they were threatening Polyphony Digital that took forever and couldnt deliver a game, but Evolution were efficent and got things done and Sony didnt like the competition. Sony shouldve kept them because Gran Tourismo took the simulated driving side while Evolution challenged and then threatened Forza with arcade-style racing, which Sony needed both.
Drive Club was awful at launch. Took them a while to fix things. I fully understand why they got the axe. MAG was ambitious and had some cool ideas, but execution was poor. And oh boy was that game laggy even on a fiber connection. A real shame, MAG and SOCOM was the best shooters Playstation had. And they killed off both.
I would love to play Socom and Mag on the PS5!
If it’s a shooter published by Sony, I won’t even entertain a conversation unless it’s a revival of SOCOM or Resistance Fall of Man. Literally the two shooters I’ve put the most time ever in online. Sigh…
