I Playstation Studios I’m in turmoil. In recent days, Hermann Holst, head of the department, has announced two significant acquisitions. However, the reorganization includes not only new entries, but also a file good bye. As has been said several times over the past few months, Sony has shut down Japan studio. Goodbye was also approved by the official PlayStation Studios website, which replaced the historical developer’s logo with the Team Asobi logo.
The news shouldn’t surprise much, given that it’s already been months since we’ve learned about Jim Ryan and Hermann Holst’s decision, with the consequent “brain drain” from the studio, which then closed last April. However, this is news that cannot fail to make noise, given that Japan Studio has been directly or indirectly responsible for games such as Ape Escape, The Legend of Dragoon, Ico and Bloodborne.
A talented team, but not always able to produce blockbuster movies and publish games on a regular basis. There are two elements that have caused the closure, considering that Comparison The interior was made using sacred beasts such as Naughty Dog, Guerrilla, Insomniac and new acquisitions, Nixxes, a studio that specializes in PC ports, and Housemarque, the Returnal studio.
On the PlayStation Studios official website The place of Japan Studio was taken by Asobe team, the developer behind Astro’s Playroom, a team that will somehow have to inherit the creativity and flair of the historical Japanese studio.
