We already reported in the spring that Uadeoft and Electronic Arts veteran Jade Raymond, with the help of Sony, had set up his own studio called Haven in Montreal, Canada. It was known at that time that Raymond was working on PlayStation-IP, and now more details about the project can be revealed.
a VGC He wrote with reference to an article in Italian Multiplayer.IT (which in turn took information from employees looking for developers) that Haven is planned for the long-term and that it will operate as an online service. Raymond wrote earlier in a blog that he believes a game should be made that the player feels, and this can be achieved by giving them freedom. According to him, it is important for the player to be able to shape the game world, its history, that is, to actively participate in the creation of the game.
Some former colleagues, such as Sebastian Boyle, who worked on Assassin’s Creed for 10 years, have already joined Raymond’s studio, but Raphael Lacoste has also joined. Lacoste recently announced that he is leaving Ubisoft after 16 Years and 8 Assassin’s Creed.
Online service games are in vogue these days, and it looks like Sony is starting to get into the genre as well. The battle-and-slash battle royale (which we didn’t invented) will arrive in August, and PS Plus subscribers will be able to get it for free.
