The official PlayStation channel announced the closing of the condition for the acquisition of the studio Haven Studios, which was founded just a year ago by the famous Canadian game designer Jade Raymond.
“It’s official! The agreement to acquire Haven has closed. Welcome to the PlayStation Studios family, @HavenStudiosInc!”- the message says.
Haven Studios is the latest brainchild of Jade Raymond, known for her work at Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, and Google. Raymond was an executive producer responsible for the creation of such famous games as Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, and Star Wars: Battlefront II. At Google, Jade was supposed to be responsible for creating content for the streaming service Stadia, but as we know, Google abandoned these plans, so Raymond left the company.
In March 2021, Jade Raymond founded Haven Studios, which was invested by Sony Interactive Entertainment. Exactly one year later, Sony decided to completely purchase the studio and add it to the PlayStation Studios team. Haven Studios has been rumored to be working on a AAA game based on a new IP for some time now.
Let’s see, the first Assassin’s Creed, Watch Dogs, and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist was really good.
