Everything has originated from an interview with the head of Diorama Studio, recognized for having lent a hand in the development of several exclusive PlayStation games.
On April 30, after many months of waiting, Returnal, the new and last release exclusively for PS5, saw the light. The studio behind this creation was Housemarque, some developers that we had already met from other projects in very successful games such as Resogun, Nex Machina and Matterfall.
Now, are there rumors about a possible acquisition of Housemarque by Sony ? Well, it seems that yes, as happened several months ago with BluePoint Games , creators of two remakes such as Shadow of the Colossus and Demon’s Souls , this study also seems to be in the company’s crosshairs.
From an interview in Portuguese with the head of Diorama Studio , the head of the Brazilian studio has left some curiosities. As they say, this team has been helping in the development of Horizon Zero Dawn, Returnal itself and many other games.
The most curious thing about the entire interview is that they have said that in Diorama they cannot specify much about Returnal due to confidentiality, but adding: ” even more so now that Housemarque is under the Sony umbrella. He then hinted a bit that Diorama is working alongside Naughty Dog on their next game.
He has also said that many publishers are interested in his first game, Araní , a title that is based on Brazilian indigenous / native culture. Could Sony be one of them ? For now, it has confirmed that they are certified by Sony .
