“And so today I’m revealing Haven, an independent studio where a lot of the skilled video game designers I have actually dealt with for many years (and like very much!) are coming together to do what we are most enthusiastic about. It’s time for us to refocus on VIDEO GAMES in a location where we can practice our crafts with no barriers or obstacles.

“We wish to produce worlds where gamers can leave, have a good time, reveal themselves, and discover neighborhood. We wish to put our enthusiasm into a job. We wish to make something fascinating for individuals to experience. Because our company believe in the power of video games to bring delight to individuals’s lives. And Sony does, too. Their dedication to quality is unequaled. It’s why I could not be better for their support and assistance.

“Together, we wish to produce video games that are a sanctuary for gamers, and we wish to construct a studio that is a sanctuary for designers. So, while we do not have numerous information to reveal today, I desire the PlayStation neighborhood to understand that Haven Studios is currently difficult at work on an unannounced IP.
