1) Housemarque has room to grow, and Returnal proved they are ready for slightly bigger projects than they have always done.
(honestly not super hyped by this but, its a fine investment)

2) Bluepoint "accidental" tweet lol :)   (the masters of remakes/remasters, this is a fantastic grab (if real))

3) wasnt there also a rumor about Arc System Works? (Guilty Gear, Persona Arena, Dragon Ball Z fighters ect devs) (fighting games)

Really excited by Housemarque! Sony needs a few more teams that put mechanics and tight gameplay first.

Arcade Styled games, modernised.


Sony was probably like.... what can we get, dev wise to add to our lineup?

How about a team that does Arcade focused games?
How about a team that does remasters really well?
How about a team that does fighters really well? (we got evo, we need a 1st party exclusive there)

Management went "Yes"

Housemarque are a quality studio and a good get for Sony.



Expected but still nice to hear.

Bluepoint should be next.

Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

Not a big fan of Housemarque, but I’m glad there’s more European presence on Sony’s first-party family. And Bluepoint’s acquisition is almost imminent, otherwise they wouldn’t have made a special panel for them.





At first I thought that I never played any of their games but it turns out they made Dead Nation and Alienation, some really fun co-op twin stick shooters.



Signature goes here!
