I think this new studio is part of Sony's plan to prepare for the PS5. I still think Fall 2020 is the best time unless a competitor makes a surprise move. Fall 2020 would be enough time for a sequel to Horizon: Zero Dawn to not be rushed as a PS5 exclusive launch title.

I heard that the next Horizon has only just begun being created a month or so ago. I don't have faith it could make any launch window.

Frozen Wilds was released on November 7th, 2017, but the original game released in March 2017 there is no way after the success of ZD that they hadn't started pre-production in probably May 2017... while part of the team worked on Frozen Wilds. Not all of them would have worked on DLC.

Now taking that into consideration... by March 2019 that will be two years working on the game, and at least another 7 months for a launch around October 2019. Now assuming a console launch of 2019, I think its tight but with the engine already done, I dont see it as a big problem. Doing it as a duel launch with TLOU2... that would be enough of a great lineup along with Knack 3 :D

But yes 2020 would certainly allow more time to make a bigger wider changing game than 1. Personally I believe a 2020 release of the next console, and that would give a few studios enough time to get started on their next projects.

I... don't get why they close some studios and then open new ones.

They have run down Psygnosis/studio liverpool and yet here they are opening new studios. I like tat theres new studios but i don't get how not to try and salvage what you got rather than open a new one.

Cause business......thats how it works, you find redundancies, get rid of them, and poor performing divisions and double down on what is working...They don;t do it for a laugh.



I just want Infamous 3 :(

More like Infamous 4 - Cole's story is done, it's Delsin that still has space for a sequel though... kinda.

The engine isn't done. You have to remember that GG are highly competitive and they wish to push any hardware that they are on. So they would still be upgrading the engine heavily as time goes on. 

I just think that it would take 3-4 years as dev cycles increase and game complexity increases.

Studio Liverpool (Psygnosis) weren't poorly performing though, and they got shafted. If that had been a Japanese Studio, they'd have been slammed.

It must suck to see your creation, Wipeout, being rehashed and released by another studio to high acclaim.



Seems more like a studio to overview and support others... like SSM have done to indies.

The studio of "Horizon Zero Dawn" and "God of War" may become bigger in the future. "Quantic Dream" and "Naughty Dog" are it already (my favorites). It will be exciting to see in what form the new studio will open up :)

Second Son is not Infamous 3. Its why its called Second Son.

Infamous 3 could be a continuation of 2's evil ending for instance and that would make Second Son a side story in the series.

Infamous 2 Good ending + Second Son Evil ending = Infamous 3.
