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.
Here are all of Sony's teams working out of the company's home country.
Originally an internal development unit named Polys Entertainment, Polyphony Digital is best known for creating Sony’s flagship racing simulation franchise, Gran Turismo.
Location: Tokyo, Japan
Current Projects: Gran Turismo 7 is out now for both PS5 and PS4, and Polyphony will be providing post-launch support for the game for the foreseeable future.
Team Asobi rose from the ashes of Japan Studio, initially an internal group building tech demos and on-boarding software such as The Playroom. It brought us Astro Bot Rescue Mission for PSVR, and is now best known for its PS5 pack-in game, Astro's Playroom.
Location: Tokyo, Japan
Current Projects: Team Asobi is staffing up for a "3D action game". It's almost certainly some sort of follow-up to Astro's Playroom, but little is known at this stage. It seems likely the game will support PSVR2.
Below you'll find details on all of SIE's European studios.
Firesprite has an interesting history; it was initially formed by developers from Studio Liverpool, an old Sony studio shuttered in 2012. Most famous for The Persistence and supporting Sony on The Playroom and The Playroom VR, this is now SIE's largest UK-based studio.
Location: Liverpool, England
Current Projects: Firesprite helped Guerrilla Games with PSVR2 launch game, Horizon Call of the Mountain. Aside from that, job listings on Firesprite's website tell of a "dark, story-driven horror" game and a "multiplayer action" title built in Unreal Engine 5. Rumour has it this could be a Twisted Metal revival.
Creators of the Killzone franchise, and acquired by Sony following the release of Shellshock: ‘Nam 67 in 2005. One of SIE's most technically capable studios, it's now best known for Horizon Zero Dawn, which runs on the studio's own Decima Engine.
Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Current Projects: Guerrilla recently finished work on Horizon Call of the Mountain in collaboration with Firesprite Games. It also recently mentioned a Horizon online co-op game, and a mobile spin-off game is also in the works.
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.
Location: Helsinki, Finland
Current Projects: Following Returnal, Housemarque is currently staffing up for its next game. It's unknown if this will be a sequel or a brand new IP, though it should be noted the studio rarely makes sequels.
SIE London Studio’s gone through multiple iterations over the years, but is perhaps best known for its work on Sony’s most family-friendly brands like SingStar and EyePet. Its latest game was the bombastic PSVR action title, Blood & Truth.
Location: London, England
Current Projects: London Studio's next game is a mystery right now, but job listings do give us a vague idea of what to expect. Several openings mention an upcoming "PlayStation 5 online game" which will be a "brand new IP". It seems this will be a live service multiplayer title; one job listing describes it as an "online co-op combat game set in modern fantasy London". This lines up with this artwork, released last year.
The makers of the LittleBigPlanet franchise, and one of Sony’s most imaginative studios. Media Molecule was acquired by Sony in 2010 following the success of Sackboy’s inaugural adventure.
Location: Guildford, England
Current Projects: With post-launch support of Dreams now concluded, Media Molecule has officially begun work on its next project. It's unlikely we'll see what this is anytime soon.
Savage Game Studios
Savage Game Studios comprises a pair of development teams committed to producing high quality action games for mobile. Sony acquired this studio in 2022 as part of its new PlayStation Studios Mobile Division.
Location: Helsinki, Finland and Berlin, Germany
Current Projects: Savage is currently developing a "new unannounced AAA mobile live service action game", and that's all we know for now.
Most of Sony's best-known studios hail from the United States. Here they all are — plus a bonus Canada team!
Infamously created Bubsy 3D for the PS1 before moving on to the Syphon Filter series under the Eidetic name. Acquired by Sony in 2000. Historically focused on portable games, the team broke back into AAA territory with Days Gone on PS4.
Location: Bend, Oregon, USA
Current Projects: All that's known right now is that Bend is making a new open world game, and it won't be a Days Gone sequel.
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. Famous for its work on Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Shadow of the Colossus, and Demon's Souls, Sony scooped up this talented team in late 2021.
Location: Austin, Texas, USA
Current Projects: Despite a history of excellent remakes and remasters, Bluepoint is currently working on an "original game". Whether that turns out to mean a whole new IP or a sequel to something more established is yet to be seen.
Firewalk Studios is a fairly young development studio, but among its staff are some real industry veterans. Some of its staff previously worked at the likes of Bungie, Respawn Entertainment, Raven Software, and more. Having announced a partnership with PlayStation in 2021, Sony fully acquired the team in 2023.
Location: Bellevue, Washington, USA
Current Projects: Firewalk Studios is currently developing a sci-fi themed online multiplayer game named Concord. That's all we know for now.
A brand new studio led by Jade Raymond, famed for her work on the Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs series. The developer has yet to release a game, but has been scooped up by Sony as the team works on its debut project.
Location: Montréal, Canada
Current Projects: Haven is developing Fairgame$, an online multiplayer shooter described as a "competitive heist experience".
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.
Location: Burbank, California, USA
Current Projects: Insomniac has just released Marvel's Spider-Man 2 and will no doubt be updating it for a while after launch. A separate team is also making Marvel's Wolverine exclusively for PS5. Previous job listings also hinted at a multiplayer title of some kind.
Location: Santa Monica, California, USA
Current Projects: Naughty Dog had been working on a standalone multiplayer game set in the Last of Us universe, but following a reported assessment from Bungie, it's unclear whether development is ongoing. Elsewhere, it's assumed that work has begun on The Last of Us: Part III, while other rumours suggest the studio is preparing a revamped PS5 release of The Last of Us: Part II.
San Diego Studio
Most famous for the critically acclaimed MLB The Show series, San Diego Studio has previously operated as a support studio for external developers, and has also worked on titles like The Mark of Kri and Pain.
Location: San Diego, California, USA
Current Projects: San Diego Studio is almost certainly working on MLB The Show 24. Old rumours suggested it might be helping out on a new Uncharted game, though there's no up-to-date evidence of this.
Santa Monica Studio
Creators of the God of War franchise. Previously incubated developers like thatgamecompany, while also serving as a support studio for external developers working on exclusive games.
Location: Los Angeles, California, USA
Current Projects: Santa Monica Studio last released God of War Ragnarok for PS5 and PS4. Cory Barlog, studio creative director, is currently working on something else, but what that is remains a mystery for now. Job listings suggest it'll be another action game.
Sucker Punch Productions
Location: Bellevue, Washington, USA
Current Projects: Future projects are currently unknown, although a sequel to Jin's open world samurai adventure seems assured.
