Sony has secured a supposedly top title for the future. To this end, a corresponding deal has now been entered into with former leaders around the sci-fi franchise Destiny.
Sony and developer Firewalk Studios have signed a publishing deal. The developer calls itself an AAA studio, which focuses on creating appropriate multiplayer gaming experiences and bringing them to market. Sony will now act as the exclusive publishing partner for this and publish a first multiplayer title. It can therefore be assumed that the new game will be released exclusively for the PlayStation.
Firewalk Studios was founded in 2018 and is led by Tony Hsu, Ryan Ellis and Elena Siegman. They all still know each other from Bungie and had key roles and functions in the creation of the sci-fi epic Destiny. Hsu is the studio manager of Firewalk and was formerly GM and SVP of Destiny at Activision. Ellis is now Game Director and was previously Creative Director at Bungie, Siegman is now Executive Producer and has worked for Harmonix and Irrational Games in addition to Bungie.
The development team also consists of many industry veterans who not only worked on Destiny, but also on other well-known series such as Call of Duty, Apex Legends, Mass Effect and Halo. So an illustrious round comes together, which of course also stirs up expectations with regard to the new multiplayer game.
Tangible information or even just a name for the new multiplayer IP are still pending for the moment. We will keep you up to date.
