PlayStation Studios announced today that it has acquired Heaven Studios. The Montreal-based company had earlier announced a partnership with Sony and is now joining the Congo line of studios acquired by the console maker.
Neither PlayStation nor Heaven has named the project that is working later. They describe it as an “ambitious” and “modern multiplayer experience that brings gamers together in a positive and meaningful way.” But PlayStation said it was the project that persuaded the company to acquire the developer.
The studio founder Jade Raymond said in a statement: “SIE is a supportive partner who truly understands the creative process and what it takes to create a blockbuster triple-A game. They have empowered and encouraged us to bring our bold vision to life and make our dreams come true and we could not be more thrilled about this opportunity to strengthen our partnership. “
Heaven is still a young studio, founded by Raymond last year. It is one of the more innovative development teams acquired by PlayStation. Others include Guerrilla Games, Naughty Dog, Insomniac, etc. – a studio that has a long history of collaboration with Sony.
