According to PlayStation Studios boss Herman Hulst, Sony Bend is developing its own new IP.
In an extensive interview with the PS blog, Hulst gave up the news that the Days Gone developers were working on a new project.
“And you know, Bend Studio is developing a very exciting new IP, and they are very, very enthusiastic about it,” Hulst said.
“They are based on the deep open world system they developed with Days Gone. So I am very happy for Bend Studio.”
According to a report in April, Sony Bend was keen to develop a sequel to Days Gone, but due to mixed reviews, the project was never realized. However, if one day director Jeff Ross makes a comment, a sequel may one day be developed.
“Never say never to anything, it’s just…maybe not now,” he said after the report broke.
Going back to the report in April, before starting the production of this new IP, Bend’s task was to produce a new Uncharted title, but many people in the studio seemed dissatisfied with this situation and worried that Bend would be absorbed by Naughty Dog.
The report also stated that the team eventually broke away from the Uncharted Waters project and started its own project.
In other interviews with Hult, it was revealed that “God of War: Twilight of the Gods” has been postponed to 2022. PlayStation Studios has more than 25 games under development, almost half of which are new IPs.
