The studio is new, but not the people who make it up. Deviation Games was founded in Los Angeles in November 2019 by Dave Anthony and Jason Blundell, two Treyarch veterans who have spanned the Call of Duty generations from Call of Duty 3 to the present day. Under the direction of these FPS specialists, Deviation Games is developing a new AAA license which will therefore be published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. “We are so fortunate to have partnered with PlayStation for our very first game. As you all know after marveling at the PlayStation Studios catalog, they know the recipe for great games. Such support gives us a glimpse of a bright future“Welcomes Dave Anthony on the PlayStation Blog.
Given Treyarch’s track record, it’s tempting to think that Sony Interactive Entertainment has called on this studio to bolster its multiplayer catalog, whose studios have single-player and narrative games in their blood. However, Dave Anthony does not confirm anything for the moment and leaves the door wide open. “I know what you are telling yourself as you read this. What kind of game are we developing? How long have we been working on it? Is it a narrative game? Is it multiplayer? In co-op? All this and more? When will it be released? I can already confirm that development is underway, but it’s a bit early to go into details“, can we read.
Deviation Games, which already has around a hundred people, wishes in any case “create a vast game, with rich and ultra-dynamic content“and promises that we won’t have to wait too long to find out more.
