Although at the same time, they've closed two studios this gen, too.
And the closed studios were bigger than the ones that were opened, which were an indie tier studio and a VR studio.
Oh yeah forgot about Pixelopus. So 3 studios though we dont know what the 3rd team entail as of right now.
This is true , but as long as the new studios are more efficient (in terms of workflow and cost) it is probably for the best.
If the new San Diego studio is really working on something Uncharted like, then they have a potential new big studio right there. Manchester definitely needs to show off something though... I suppose they are being held back for PS5 which is too bad but oh well
