Sony reportedly opening studio to focus solely on Project MorpheusBy Robin-Leigh Chetty 22 May 2015 | Categories: news
Earlier this year, many companies joined the ranks of Oculus and Sony by debuting their own takes on Virtual Reality headsets. While Oculus has been doing it for longer, Sony's Project Morpheus looked the best of the rest by quite some margin. After moving from the prototype to the developer phase, Sony has reportedly taken another step forward with a new game studio dedicated exclusively to the design of content for Project Morpheus.
According to Eurogamer, a number of job listings have gone up describing the following. “An exciting and rare opportunity to join an ambitious new studio to create original games exclusively for Project Morpheus, PlayStation’s VR platform.” For now, Sony has declined to comment on whether a VR specific studio is under development, but Eurogamer believes such an announcement is merely a formality, as two sources have confirmed that Sony is setting up a studio somewhere in Manchester, England.
Adding further credence to the rumours, is the name of the studio accompanying the aforementioned job listings - North West Studio. While Sony is yet to confirm the news, Digital Trends is expecting an announcement around Project Morpheus at E3 this year, especially as the VR offering is slated for arrival in 2016. Until the official word from Sony, feast your eyes on the Project Morpheus video below.
