Sony’s London Studio has often worked on accessory-based games for PlayStation systems, and its recent efforts have been on PlayStation VR. Now, it appears the studio is gearing up for a PS5 project that’s going to have online play, but it’s not clear if it will be a VR game.
A listing on the studio’s site says it needs an online gameplay designer who will work on a PS5 project. The listing specifically mentions online multiplayer, as well as working with narrative and mission leads, so there will apparently be some sort of story content that could work alongside the multiplayer. The specifics on what kind of game it is are otherwise pretty much nonexistent, however.
We do know that London Studio is working on making VR content work for PS5, at least as far as past games go. A patch released shortly after the PS5’s launch added improvements to Blood & Truth, which originally launched for PS4’s PSVR. It added higher frame rates and resolutions as well as better textures while still using the original headset and an adapter on the new console.
