Deviation is doing multiplayer right?
The founding members are from Treyarch.

GhostofHorizon123d ago

Nothing has been confirmed, we only know they are working on a new Playstation IP. Considering their previous experience, people are expecting a FPS, most likely with multiplayer.

Wonder if this second team will be working on the same game or are they trying to work on multiple projects.

Witchcraft123d ago

It clearly states it's a third person action/adventure game, possibly with open world.

Christopher123d ago

The developer stated nothing, actually. If you saw that, it was a journalist, not the developer.

Witchcraft123d ago

Come on, the information is right there on the PS blog - "Deviation Games signs with PlayStation to develop a new original IP".

Christopher123d ago

1. That's not in this article, so that's confusing to respond to if you're referring to some other source.
2. Even that doesn't state what type of game it is.

"What kind of game are we making? How long have we already been working on it? Is it story based? Multiplayer? Co-op? Or all of the above and more? When is it coming out? While I can confirm development is already underway, it’s really early for us to be going into specific details. We’re drawing on what we’ve learned over our collective decades making games, but we’re also out to make something fresh and brimming with innovation like you’ve never experienced before. We’re not afraid to say that our ambitions are super high: we’re setting out to make a huge, content-rich game with a focus on a lot of action and a lot of energy, but let’s leave it at that for now and hopefully it won’t be long before we can share more."

They say "a lot of action" and "a lot of energy." They do not say "action/adventure game, possibly open world." Any shooter, hack and slash, etc. game can have action and energy,

Hopefully whatever they're working on is cool, without any info that's about all i can say lol

Looks like their new Playstation IP is going to be huge! Call of Duty Killer anyone? 😍

purple101123d ago

I think teryarch are good. Just that Activision pushed them to release a game too often and the quality suffered. Even with that they still make a decent game

Sony won't push them like that not as fast anyway there will always be pressure.

I think they will make something top quality soon!

CaptainHenry916123d ago (Edited 123d ago )

Every Call of Duty developer has suffered. TBH Activision quality games have suffered

ziggurcat123d ago

"Call of Duty Killer anyone?"

Not likely.

CaptainHenry916123d ago

I think Call of Duty has killed itself at least in Quality

ziggurcat123d ago

I dunno, I had a good time with the WWII single player campaign... I would try the Vanguard SP campaign as well since it's more of a "historical" game than the modern warfare stuff I can't stand.

It's a pretty well-established, ridiculously high-selling franchise, so I doubt that much - if anything - can be called a "CoD killer"... especially from an unknown dev team.

CaptainHenry916123d ago (Edited 123d ago )

I agree but these yearly releases is starting to ignore me. It feels like they're doing it just to get some quick cash regardless of the quality and reviews.

Orchard123d ago

It’ll be a COD killer just like how Titanfall was a COD killer and how Haze was a Halo killer.

CaptainHenry916122d ago

The problem is COD is just not the same anymore in quality. Hardcore gamer's already know that. It's good at making money though especially from the casual gamers

MrBeatdown123d ago

If Microsoft wants to keep future Call of Duty games of PlayStation, Microsoft would be doing half the job for them.

With the last Call of Duty and Battlefield sucking, if I was a developer I'd be pretty optimistic about my chances.

porkChop123d ago

The studio is brand new and hasn't released a single game. Some of the devs may be from Treyarch, but the rest are from across the industry. Having experience doesn't mean the new team will have chemistry or work well together out of the gate. Most new studios struggle with their first couple games. Assuming it'll be a COD killer at this stage is a bit much. Let them release a game or two first before we assume they're even on that level.

Also Sony has been arming up for quite some time. Remember hearing About Haven studio being opened a short while back. Whilst expanding existing studios.

Polyphony digital moved to offices twice the size.
Gurilla games tripled their office size
Santa Monica also moved to larger studios

We are totally safe for high quality games

Magog123d ago

And don't forget Firewalk Studios

Another potential CoD Killer.

purple101123d ago

Looks good. Don't know what there making though ?

Mr_cheese123d ago

Personally, I think we need to not focus on the phrase cod killer. Let the games be made and then let then speak for themselves.

Christopher123d ago

CoD killer based on? Let's not put the cart before the horse here.

Crows90123d ago (Edited 123d ago )

Sony partnering with a brand new studio that has no IP under its belt. This is what a partnership that leads to purchasing a studio looks like.

They give the studio support and opportunity and overtime if they do well they join the team.

Magog123d ago

I wouldn't be surprised to learn that they are snatching up the Kena Bridge of Spirits Devs soon.

Crows90123d ago

I've yet to play it....but elden ring and horizon are coming out soon...
