Jetpack Interactive, a small support studio based in Vancouver, has posted job listings for a AAA live service game it is working on with Sony. The title is based on a "flagship" PlayStation IP, and will form part of the platform holder's large push into the live service games sector. The Canadian team is actively recruiting engineers in the gameplay, networking, and rendering sectors.
This appears to be the first game Jetpack Interactive will have developed on its own, with its previous work revolving around bringing other titles to market. It helped EA on the NBA Live series for a number of years before providing "engineering support" for the Steam upgrade to Dark Souls. It then did the same for Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2.
In recent years, though, the studio appears to have developed a relationship with Sony. It ported Orcs Must Die! Unchained to PS4, brought God of War to PC, and has also lent a helping hand on God of War Ragnarok.
With hirings still ongoing, it's unlikely this project will see the light of day with an announcement any time soon. Sony plans to launch 10 live services games by March 2026, though, so this will be just one of many. The Last of Us Multiplayer will spearhead the lineup, and it'll be joined by a Twisted Metal title from Firesprite Games. Destiny 2 developer Bungie has been acquired to help the company make all of this a success.
