Instead of buying new studios I would prefer if Sony should Re-open their old Studios,
Zipper (experts in Multiplayer games)
Evolution Studios ( arcade racer) Considering how slow PD are
OR
Build New Studios with likes of Amy Hening, David Jeffe in leads.

Also Building more teams inside exisiting studio will be more efficient

I don't see the viability of opening studios that were losing money for years, and without the original teams (which will be practically impossible to get).

I also don't think either Henning or Jaffe are worth it at this point for Sony. If Henning could actually get her management skills tightened up then sure Sony is the best fit for her. But after the UC4 debacle I'm not sure so sure.

Definitely expansion is the way to go for Sony and clearly their modus operandi going forward. That said, a studio like Bluepoint is, nonetheless, quite a good fetch for them if they try to pursue them.



Around the Network

Bluepoint, Insomniac and Kojima Productions are the most likely targets.

In the same breath so was Cory Barlog, It was Shanon Studstill at SSM studio who brought him back and the result is in front of us. and its not directors job to keep the team together or choose the team, its head of the studio's job. 

Cant back jaffe much after Drawn to Death, but Amy is know across the industry for writing great stories and characters, and not to mention she would be vital in that new studio which has been rumored that sony purposefully built to deliver future uncharted games. Nobody understand uncharted better than her.



Platinum is way to close to Nintendo to be bought by anyone but them, in my opinion.

Not exactly. Cory has had a role in the all the mainline releases in the GoW franchise except for Ascension. Jaffe only worked on GoW1 and 2. Barlogs career at SSM is far greater than that of Jaffes so it makes sense that Shannon would try to bring Cory back into the fold for the next GoW title (he has been part of the entire IP practically). Barlog has also had a wildly more successful career post GoW2 (and even just post GoW).

Henning already has a new indie studio outfit, so Sony could work with her on something. But I doubt Sony brings her in as a director, and I doubt she only wants a writing position. The new UC is going to be a new wave for the series, so she isn't that vital for the series going forward.

Who Sony needs back is Bruce Stratey, who was co-director on UC2, TloU, TLoU LB and UC4 (because Hennigs UC4 was having troubled development) and would have been on TLoU2, but he decided to leave ND because he was just burnt out (by the UC4 situation).

That said, if Sony could find a place for both Jaffe and Hennig that would be great. I don't oppose it, I just don't see the need for it. 



Around the Network

Kojima Pro (so that they can help Japan Studio to make a reboot of Siren, and help Bend with Syphon Filter).

Bluepoint Games (those remakes)
Imsomniac
Platinum games

I think Hennig would be a nice fit for the new studio in charge of Uncharted. Bruce too

Perhaps so. I think after Lost Legacy her involvement, especially since I expect them to move on from Drake, is not that important.

Bruce would hopefully come back at some point, but only to work on a new IP. He was done with UC after 2, only being involved with 4 because of the Hennig situation.



Personally, I'd be most excited in them getting Bluepoint. Their remasters and remakes are something else. And I love how they reverse engineer the games so as to not lose anything. Can't wait to see their next project.

And for a certain user's sake, and really my own, I hope we get that LOD remake.

Purchase Bluepoint and put them to remake FF IX better than S-E would do, then get LoD.
