Deviation Games, formed by ex Call of Duty leads Dave Anthony and Jason Blundell, has partnered with Sony to create a new triple-A title.
The studio's unknown title was announced at the Summer Game Fest with no further details revealed.
Blundell served as Treyarch’s Call of Duty Zombies lead for several years before moving to Deviation to help create what was described as a “ground-breaking” new action title.
Deviation CEO Dave Anthony, said:
To be creatively unleashed and given the freedom to build something entirely new is a dream come true. It’s an honor to be working with Sony and their entire team. Their track record of producing high-quality, award-winning games is unparalleled, and we could not be more thrilled to embrace the opportunity to expand PlayStation’s portfolio.
We’re building a team of passionate, creative, experienced developers to take on the unknown! Our team loves to play games as well as make them, so making a home for developers to create the best work of their career is not just our goal… but our calling.
Hermen Hulst, Head of PlayStation Studios, said:
In our industry, in the craft of making the best new games, there is absolutely no substitute for the marriage of pure talent, decades of experience and the proven track record that the team at Deviation brings to the table. We are honored to partner with and invest in daring creatives, recognizing full well the challenges of building teams from the ground up and developing successful new IPs. We’re very enthusiastic about the creative vision that Deviation is passionately executing for their first, original project.
