Sony is Creating a New Internal Development Team in Partnership With Visual Arts

The team will work on an unannounced "high visibility project" in collaboration with The Last of Us and Uncharted developer Naughty Dog.

The Last of Us Part 1

A new job listing has emerged for a Senior Producer at PlayStation Global. It seems innocuous enough, but the description reveals that it’s for a new internal game development team.

It’s being created in partnership with PlayStation Studios Visual Arts, a group specializing in animation, cinematics, motion capture, and more. Many will recognize it as Sony Visual Arts Service Group, which reportedly headed up The Last of Us Part 1 before it was moved under Naughty Dog’s budget. The group was then allegedly demoted to a support studio.

The listing recognizes the team for its “contributions to The Last of Us franchise” and notes that the new internal development team will work on a “high visibility project.” It’s currently unannounced but confirmed to be developed in collaboration with Naughty Dog.

“Though currently unannounced, we have a clear vision and plan to release. Using our existing expertise and premier talent, we will guarantee a high visual quality bar for the game and a compelling experience for our players.” Those proficient in “all aspects of AAA game production and management” are invited to apply.

There are several different possibilities for what this new project could be. A new title in The Last of Us series? Another spin-off, like the upcoming standalone multiplayer title? The Last of Us Part 1 Remake Remastered Ultra-Deluxe? Time will ultimately tell, but it could be related to Naughty Dog’s plans to build “future teams for new Uncharted titles.” Stay tuned for further announcements (and the development team’s official name).
