Forums - Sony Discussion - will Sony get more studio(s)?

Lets see if they'll bother expanding their Japanese studios. I'm hoping Monster Hunter World and Splatoon's breakthrough in the west will push them to that direction. That would help further diversifying their 1st party lineup.

I could be wrong but i thought there was some info on them building a new studio somewhat recently, that being said i want them to get another Japanese studio that can work on some JRPGs be it new IPs or any of their old ones (like LOD).

yes I agree with this as well 



More studios is better, but I don't want they to do FPS

What they are doing is occasionally splitting up dev studios to work on different games at same time. I think there will be more of this going - ie the same studio working on 2 games at once.

Having said that sony do seem to have a knack of purchasing studios that do well (and closing those that are mediocre) so i dont rule it out.



Given how long development time is taking then yes, 1 more would be great!

Wasnt there a job listing about new studio in San Diego with support from one of the big first party studio (might be Uncharted).

I dont think any racer is reasonable anymore, racing games arent selling as well as they used to and there is no point to make new studio for it. I think Sony should make 120 employee studio for FPS games. Maybe pick two IPs and make games for them. Lets say start with resistance and then pick some other IP and then Resistance again.

Its not a studio in san diego just a new team to work on a 3rd person adventure game similar to uncharted. it could be uncharted who knows.

 

tho forza sells just fine and there is a lack of racing games. on a playstation platform twice size of xbox I don't see how a good racing game would do bad. even driveclub sold well and it was problomatic early on release

Sony doesn't have a studio in San Diego, there can't be a new team if there is no studio there. This would be a new studio if true.



I don't really want Sony to have a studio just to make an FPS.
I want studios to be able to do what they want. Otherwise we wouldn't have gotten Horizon this gen.

Sony San Diego is 17 years old.  There is a studio there.  They make MLB: The Show .
