Haven Studios

Haven Studios lead Jade Raymond has said the developer's debut game under Sony will be "something innovative that people will be excited to play", and becoming part of PlayStation Studios has allowed the team to realize its ambitions. The comments come as part of what is essentially a puff piece on the SIE website, which is treated as a quickfire Q&A with Raymond.

Internally, the 100+ employees that now make up Haven Studios are playing the currently unannounced game every day, which is one of the many live-service titles Sony has in production for PS5. Raymond points out the team has recruited "exceptional cloud engineers" since much of the remote work being put into this new IP is using the sphere. One other key detail is the game will utilise Unreal Engine 5.

"I’m happy to share that the game is already fun! We play every day and that keeps us inspired to push further. Our current project will be Haven’s first game and our first new IP for PlayStation," Raymond explained. "We want to deliver the very best game we possibly can. The bar is high, but we have a great team and believe we can create something innovative that people will be excited to play."

It seems unlikely the project will be officially unveiled any time soon, but what sort of game do you hope Haven Studios is working on? While live service aspects seem to be locked in, what genre do you predict the title will fall in? Post your predictions in the comments below.
