PlayStation Acquires Valkyrie Entertainment As Latest Studio Acquisition

It happens that play station wasn’t done adding studios to the family for 2021, such as Herman Hulst has just announced the acquisition of Valkyrie Entertainment.

Holly made the announcement through his Twitter account, with a short message that read,

“Today we are announcing Valkyrie Entertainment will join the PlayStation Studios family. The studio will make an invaluable contribution to key PlayStation Studios franchisees.”

While this takeover may seem off left field to many, as is usually the case, it was a very strategic move. Valkyrie Entertainment has been an independent developer who produced their own game called Arms up!, but they mainly do support work for other studios.

They already have a strong pedigree with play station, as they have helped run support for both recent god of war titles. That are the PS4 reboot and the coming God Of War Ragnarok.

Valkyrie Entertainment have also worked on the will of Middle Earth: Shadow Of War, Halo Infinite, and State of decay 2. Suffice it to say they’ve been around and clearly know what they’re doing, and Sony clearly like what they bring to the table.
