"We have a saying at Firewalk: build a great team, build a great game. One leads directly to the other," Hsu explains, before pointing to the team's pedigree.

The studio features developers that worked on Destiny, Guitar Hero, Bioshock, Mass Effect and Apex Legends.

With Sony's large portfolio of single-player content with the likes of God of War, Spider-Man and Horizon, there's definitely a gap in the publisher's portfolio for a first-party multiplayer title.
