“Firesprite is a creative and ambitious studio that is exceptional at building incredible experiences that truly showcase the potential of our hardware,” said Hulst while welcoming the team into the fold. “The team’s technical and creative capabilities will be paramount to growing our stellar catalogue of exclusive games, and I think you’ll be excited for what’s to come.“
In a letter included with the announcement, Managing Director of Firesprite Graeme Ankers said it was an “incredibly exciting day” for the tea, and that they were very much looking forward to getting to be part of the future journey of PlayStation Studios.
“PlayStation also gave us the opportunity to create our own IP, The Persistence, and we were given the creative freedom to explore, innovate, and release a survival horror game we are immensely proud of,” Ankers said in his letter. “Now, as a first-party studio, we know we have the full support of PlayStation in furthering our heritage of combining creativity and technical innovation to offer some truly unique experiences for PlayStation fans.”
