Deviation’s PS5 Shooter is getting a campaign

Twitter user Oops Leaks, who has quickly built a reputation for accurate leaks and reports, claims that Deviation Games’ upcoming PlayStation 5 exclusive shooter will feature a story-heavy single-player campaign in addition to multiplayer. Deviation is made up of industry veterans with expertise in multiplayer shooters and is led by former Call of Duty lead Jason Blundell. The studio announced a partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment in June of last year, but has not disclosed what it is working on. However, feature descriptions pointed to a multiplayer shooter.

When will the PS5 shooter from Deviation Games come out?

According to Oops Leaks, the “ambitious” project is still in early development and is expected to be released sometime in 2024. It should be unveiled within a year. Apparently, Deviation is working on a “world-class” first-person shooter that will be supported for years if not “generations” and will include both arcade and competitive modes. Oops Leaks goes on to say that the game will come with “a lot of modes”, but as it’s still in early development, things could change.

Opinion: PS5 needs multiplayer shooters

Zamena writes… Multiplayer shooters tend to capture a lot of flak, but they’re almost a necessity. Look at the best-selling games of each year and you’ll find that most PlayStation and Xbox players buy and interact with Call of Duty. Ignoring this genre is no longer an option for Sony. In addition, story-focused single-player games and live-service multiplayer games can co-exist.
