Another job listing says Sony’s new studio is working with Naughty Dog on ‘a beloved franchise’ | VGC
PlayStation appears to have established a new internal team in San Diego…
Earlier this week a role advertised on a job recruitment site stated that Sony was “building a new internal game development team in partnership with PSS Visual Arts”, the San Diego-based support studio which recently contributed to The Last of Us Part 1.
The job listing later stated that the unannounced project was being developed in collaboration with Uncharted and The Last of Us studio Naughty Dog.
These sections of the job listing were latter removed and replaced with: “Sony PlayStation is building a new internal game development team. This is the same world-class team known for its contributions to the Last of Us franchise!”
Now, another job listing has been published, based in the same San Diego area as Visual Arts. Although it doesn’t make specific reference to the studio, it states that the role is for “a new PlayStation studio based in San Diego, CA.”
It goes on to state that, “currently we are co-developing an exciting new project with Naughty Dog in a beloved franchise.”
PlayStation’s Visual Arts Service Group was established with the goal of growing some of PlayStation’s biggest franchises. For many years it worked as a support studio on series like Spider-Man and Uncharted, but according to reports, recently held ambitions to lead its own projects.
