Supermassive Games says it wants to end its status as a PlayStation exclusive developer.
The firm has a strong relationship with Sony, which has commissioned most of the studio’s titles. The most recent was the BAFTA winning horror game Until Dawn.
We’ve worked closely with Sony for as long as the studio has been around, so the past eight years,” MD Pete Samuels told MCV. I’ve loved it, they are great to work with and we have a strong relationship with them. I think a lot of the work we do with them aligns well with what we want to do and where we want to go. But yes, we are an independent studio and we are keen, going forward, to bring our games to wider audiences than we have in the past. That’s what we are all about right now, and it’s an exciting time for us.”
Supermassive remains committed to PlayStation, however. The firm’s next two games – Tumble VR and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood – are exclusive to PlayStation VR and will launch alongside the hardware.
These games came up when we first started talking to Sony about PS VR,” Samuels said.
These are games that we can have huge confidence in, because they have come from other franchises that appealed to gamers in the first place.”
