Rent London Studio for PS5 Multiplayer Game

PlayStation’s London Studio has stepped up recruiting efforts for its unannounced PS5 multiplayer game. While we’ve known for a while that London Studio is working on a multiplayer project for the next-gen console, details have been kept secret, with the exception of a few tidbits that fans have scraped from feature descriptions.

Nevertheless, the latest hires suggest that London Studio is ready to fire on all cylinders and accelerate development.

What we know about London Studio’s PS5 multiplayer game

Judging by previously seen job descriptions, the mysterious PS5 game may feature procedural worlds and content.

“Use your knowledge of procedural content generation to deliver efficient, iterative pipelines for generating AAA Environment Art, Materials, and other Art content,” read a job description for a procedural technical artist in October. The ad stated that he had “good knowledge and experience with Houdini for generating procedural worlds” and had experience in “developing technical art, including procedural content, shaders, tools and optimization for games.”

People have speculated that London Studio may be reviving PlayStation Home, but there’s no concrete evidence of that just yet.

In response to London Studio’s latest tweet, PlayStation Studios boss Hermen Hulst expressed his excitement at the project, and London Studio added that it can’t wait to show fans what it’s working on.

Opinion: London Studio should revive PlayStation Home

Zamena writes… I’ve always argued that PlayStation Home was ahead of its time and now is the perfect time to bring it back. With Sony’s renewed focus on social aspects coupled with London Studio’s past experience, it makes sense to have something like this again. That said, Sony is in dire need of multiplayer games, so London Studio making something new from scratch is just as welcome.
