Sony’s PlayStation Studios has been having a fairly busy year with the acquisition of Housemarque (Returnal), Nixxes Software (for bringing more titles to PC) and Firesprite Studios (which is rumored to be working on a Horizon VR title). But it seems that other acquisitions could be announced in the future, at least judging from a tease by insider shinobi602 on ResetEra.
Regarding Nixxes and Firesprite Studios now being included in the PlayStation Studios page, the insider posted a GIF of The Lord of the Rings‘ Frodo stating, “There’s room for a little more.” Another insider Matt, who’s leaked details on acquisitions for Xbox Game Studios in the past, replied but with a simple, “Ha.” Both are either joking around or potentially hinting at something coming up.
It could honestly go either way so take this with a grain of salt. One possibility is that Bluepoint Games is announced as the next big acquisition. Originally leaked by PlayStation Japan in a tweet, which was then removed, the announcement was rumored to be happening at the recent PlayStation Showcase. Time will tell if the developer has really joined the PlayStation Studios roster so stay tuned in the coming days.
