Former Treyarch studio head and game director Jason Blundell announced he’s co-founding a new game studio in partnership with Sony PlayStation.
The new Jason Blundell studio is called Deviation Games and is also a partnership with Dave Anthony, another former Treyarch leader.
So far, there’s no Deviation Games release that we know of, but Anthony said in a PlayStation Blog post the first project is well underway.
He didn’t share details on it, not even if it’s a single-player or multiplayer game.
Here’s everything we know so far about Deviation Games.
June 10 - Summer Game Fest
Geoff Keighley, Blundell, and Anthony unveiled Deviation Games and promised more information in the future.
Deviation Games First Game
As we mentioned, there's no telling what the first Deviation Games project will be. However, Anthony and Blundell described their philosophy like this:
Deviators are not only passionate about their own discipline, but they love others too. We believe that is what is unique and special about our studio, the culture, the team, and this project. From experience, young determined studios need rock solid support to thrive.
That’s why it means so much that PlayStation is partnering with us on our first game. As you all know–having enjoyed the amazing PlayStation Studios portfolio–they know what it takes to make great games. To have a partner like that behind us makes the road ahead simply breathtaking.
Deviation Games on Xbox?
Since Deviation Games was formed in partnership with PlayStation, we doubt their first project will appear on Xbox, at least, not initially.
It's always possible we could see Deviation Games on PC, though, since Sony's been keen to port some of its exclusives to PC recently.
