What are all PlayStation Studios developers and what are they working on? In this PlayStation Studios guide, we’re going to list all of the Japanese giant’s subsidiary game makers, along with their current projects. We’ll be updating this article regularly, as new titles are announced.

Established: 2013

Housemarque Sony PlayStation First-Party Studios Guide 1

Finnish developer Housemarque has worked closely with Sony for over a decade. The studio specialises in arcade-like action, bringing us titles such as Super Stardust HD, Resogun, and of course its latest work, Returnal. The success of the latter pushed Sony to acquire the team in 2021.

Established: 1995

Location: Helsinki, Finland

Current Projects: Housemarque is currently working on its next game. It's unknown if this will be a sequel to Returnal or a brand new IP, though it should be noted the studio rarely makes sequels.

Bluepoint Games has had a close relationship with Sony for many years, producing original games as well as remakes and remasters of beloved PlayStation classics.

Famed for PlayStation exclusive series such as Ratchet & Clank and Resistance, the developer has felt like part of the first party family all along. With Marvel's Spider-Man and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales being such huge hits, it's no wonder Sony scooped the studio up in 2019.
