By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
PlayStation has partnered with the new Deviation development team for a brand new IP. Literally, that is all of the major news.

On PlayStation Blog, there is an article explaining the move, written by the head of the studio, Dave Anthony. "Today we are thrilled to announce a landmark deal for Deviation Games, working with Sony Interactive Entertainment to develop a brand-new original IP."

"I know what you’re thinking as you read this. 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."

In fairness, this is a big team of over 100, being led by both Anthony and Jason Blundell of Call of Duty fame. And they have a logo, which is more than Jade Raymond's Haven studio had when it was announced to be partnering with Sony.

Thoughts, please! What are you expecting, or will you wait and see? Another studio for Sony to fatten before purchasing? Let us know because I can't say we were too bothered in the office!

Hey, I'm Kes! I'm a Staff Writer, and I've been here since 2021. What do I like? The Outer Wilds is top notch. The Witcher 3 blew my mind over the course of five years completing it. I want Burnout back — I really miss crunching mechanical wonders into walls to the sound of Guns N' Roses. Cool, now we are acquainted, I'll see you around.
