New Sony Studio Opens, Dedicated To Project Morpheus
Sony continues to dedicate plenty of money and resources to Project Morpheus.
The company's new virtual reality headset should have plenty of software when it finally arrives next year, thanks to hard-working internal teams.
As Sony confirmed to GameSpot, a new team called North West Studios is now hiring and their focus is VR. The team already includes personnel from Evolution Studios (MotorStorm, Driveclub), and now they're looking to dive into a new era of gaming. Said a Sony spokersperson:
"We are dedicated to producing high quality experiences for Project Morpheus, and the creation of this studio allows us to build a small but highly experienced team who can utilise their skills to showcase this exciting new immersive technology.
We're always look to relocate staff throughout the studios, and this is no exception. The new team will be made up of a combination of Evolution staff members and new talent, with a focus on hiring the most highly experienced team possible."
We'd heard that Evolution was sampling Project Morpheus for Driveclub, so they've already got some experience. It seems plausible that one of the first available titles for Project Morpheus will be a racer of some kind.
What kind of game would you like to see in VR? Is there a particular genre that most appeals to you when involved in "full immersion," so-to-speak?
