Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that they have entered an agreement to be the exclusive publisher for a AAA original multiplayer IP from developer Firewalk Studios.
This will be the first game from developer Firewalk Studios. The team is made up of veteran developers from some of the biggest multiplayer games on the market including Call of Duty, Apex Legends, Halo, and Destiny.
The team has already been holding daily play sessions and PlayStation announced that they have been working with the team for two years already. Hopefully that means that whatever it is isn’t too far off. You can read more about the announcement below.
Founded in 2018, Firewalk Studios is led by Tony Hsu (studio head, previously general manager and senior vice president of Destiny at Activision), Ryan Ellis (game director, previously creative director at Bungie) and Elena Siegman (executive producer, previously at Harmonix, Irrational Games, and Bungie). The team includes a deep roster of highly talented developers who have helped deliver top-selling, culturally impactful titles, including the Destiny franchise, where all three leads worked successfully together on both development and publishing, as well as Call of Duty, Apex Legends, Mass Effect, and Halo. This collected expertise allows this team to focus on delivering a rich multiplayer game experience rooted in great core gameplay and inspired art. Firewalk continues to recruit top talent for its team, which is built on collaboration, inclusion, and respect.
