Firstly, congratulations to everyone involved and hope the end products is amazing.
Firstly, congratulations to everyone involved and hope the end products is amazing.

Now, what the heck is happening. PlayStation is partnering up with almost every ex major FPS developers out there to make games. Seems like PlayStation is addressing weakness in its 1st party studio which just dont make FPS game (RIP Killzone and Resistance series) and try to fill the FPS space by partnering up with all the studios formed by ex Call of Duty devs to make their own FPS titles.

The latest news is PlayStation is partnering with Deviation Games, a studio formed by ex Treyarch veterans. This on top of recent news of Firewalk Studios partnership, them made up of ex Bungie developers and Haven Studios which led by Ass Creed creator. Probably studio acquisitions if things went well judging by history. I am all for it, more exclusives is always a good thing in my book.

Not the biggest fan of service based FPS games. I would rather see a new Single player Killzone or resistance.

Its a shame both Killzone and Resistance series are dead. Beat recently Resistance 3 and that series trully had potential to be something greater

@djoffer123: Absolutely not. Console gamers namely Sony gamers want more third person movie crap. Why made FPS?? Too much gameplay.

Are call of duty and Treyarch devs known for making great FPS games?

Last great FPS game I played by them was Call of Duty: United Offensive. And that studio was Gray Matter.

This is fantastic news. Call of Duty is the premier FPS franchise in the industry so you know this elite talent will deliver some $70 bangers for PS Penta ballers.

When I used to buy COD I hated when Treyarch was the developer .. didn't care for the Black Ops series. I preferred Infinity Ward's offerings. Not saying these guys are not talented, just that their former studio didn't really wow me.

I've been over FPS games since 2009 when the genre was flooded by military style games. Now it's flooded with horror games. I have zero expectations that any of these FPS projects will make me care to play them.

Instead of buying their way to the top, Sony just hires talent.

Another easy win for PS and PC. 😎

The last 2 CoD’s have been good-great, and before the MW reboot, Treyarch were the dev making the CoDs

@ermacness: True. And I have high hopes for this years Call Of Duty.

The new engine is pretty great and the new animations in MW particularly were awesome.

I thought people didn't like Treyarch?

To be honest when I think of teams "made up of veterans", I think of Free Radical Design, Valhalla games, Hideo Kojima and his walking sim developer (can't remember what they're called).

They aren't always as good as the original developers. See how it turns out, rather than being pre-maturely excited.

Sony forms new companies and create new experiences. MS just pays to keep established games off platforms they've been on already.

How did 'a few COD employees' equate to 'all the ex major first person shooter developers!!' in your head? I'm genuinely curios.

@theam0g: each of the studios is actually pretty big. This deviation Studios right now employs 100+ staff and according to the tweets I read many from various cod dev (and some others) teams. Pretty serious numbers for a brand new studio.

Pretty embarrassing thread.

Deviation Games - Former CoD devs.
Ew.

Firewalk Studios - Former CoD and Destiny devs.
Double ew.

Haven Studios - Former Asssassin's Creed dev, Jade Raymond.
Ok, this has to be the ewest.

This is what you Sony fans want? Sweet jebus..

It seems to be talent from a bunch of studios that know how to make a boat load of money at least. Hopefully they have some interesting ideas.

ID Software would like to have a word with this claim.

Besides they already have Insomniac... and we still dont have a Resistance. I bet this is their F2P chase the Battle Royale crew they are pulling together. In which case, all your best men will not interest me.

Its amusing as hell watching Cows feign excitement over these nothing ass studio partnerships Sony keeps announcing over twitter.

These trash ass twitter announcements sony keeps doing are so clearly a "dont forget about us" attempt to get Playstation back in the headlines that are about to be dominated by Xbox acquisition discussion over the next week.

Its even funnier that Cows are capping for "ex-developers" they dont care about, in genres they dont care about. This shit is also so premature, Jade Raymond didnt even have a logo for that studio, and I question whether she even secured an office space lease at time of posting. Some of this shit is so premature, its literally just a few email correspondences.

Microsoft has been doing this for the past 3-4 years, and they've both built, and rehabilitated far more prospective developers than this. They've done mass hiring sprees, and expanded every developer they've purchased, many of which are making blockbuster AAA games now.

To review:

Initiative

Coalition

Obsidian

InXile

Playground Games

Double Fine Productions

Ninja Theory

Undead Labs

Compulsion Games

Cows called the above studios trash "c-tier developers", and now they're gushing over these no-name studios who arent even staffed yet, and will not release a game this half of the decade. Some of these studios have doubled in size.

And when Microsoft actually acquires people who arent "trash c-tier developers" according to Cows, they start crying about "Grow 👏your 👏own 👏talent👏" 🤣. Lets just be honest with whats happening here...... Cows are jealous of the positive attention Xbox is getting, and feel threatened that momentum is shifting in favor of Xbox. This is true reguardless of the early launch sales. Anyone with eyes can see that PS5 is operating entirely on PS4 momentum, hype and FOMO right now. That is why it is selling. Not because of Returnal, or Ratchet and Clank, or Astro's Playroom, or Sackboy. This fetishization from Cows of "Launch Year exclusives" is.....weird......

I knew about two of the three already but it's awesome news either way. New studios are always welcome in my book. I like that SONY is pushing the multiplayer side of things and Assassins Creed is for the most part a great franchise regardless of what the haters say.

I think I would cry if I found out that they were working on a new SOCOM game and actually putting a large team and budget behind it.... but I know that's probably just a pipe dream. Either way, I'm excited to see what they all bring to the table.

Now the question is whether the games they are working on are considered part of the 25 or not and if other 3rd party deals are included in those numbers as well.

I know there are other members here that are excited for both MS and SONY making announcements. Good to see BOTH making more games in genres (probably) I'm actually interested in. More RPG's and open world in MS games and more shooters and online multiplayer in SONY? Hell yeah, sign me up for that shit.
