PlayStation Studios Is Working On An Unannounced Heavily Stylized AAA Game

No intricate details for the mystery game have yet been revealed yet.

Story Highlights

  • PlayStation Studios is possibly brewing an unannounced, heavily stylized AAA project, as noted in PlayStation’s John Borba’s resume in his LinkedIn profile.
  • There are no other details for the following entry, and it could be a third-party title as John is outsourcing the art, as mentioned in the resume.
  • It is also possible that the Horizon multiplayer spin-off project is the same as this one due to the job listings sharing the stylized keyword, but that project has been announced on Twitter.
  • We suggest taking the new info with a grain of salt, as no concrete specifics have been confirmed for the time. We may hear more about this project in the future.

PlayStation Studios could be working on yet another unannounced AAA entry, as spotted by the Twitter user, Timur222. The LinkedIn profile of the PlayStation employee John Borba reads, “Art Outsourcing Coordinator on an unannounced, heavily-stylized AAA project,” suggesting that a new title by the giant conglomerate is possibly the brewer.

John’s resume on LinkedIn lists the following tidbit, but there are almost no other details that shed more light on the nature of this project. It is worth stating that the following game is in the works by PlayStation Visual Arts, which often works with third-party studios. Also, the description explicitly states that the art for the unannounced title is being outsourced. The studio could probably be working with an internal or an external one.

It is difficult to pinpoint whether this AAA unannounced project is already one that is circulated by rumors or if it is an entirely new title, as Sony is thought to be brewing many games behind the scenes. The second point also emphasizes that John is working collaboratively with an external studio, which could mean it could be a third-party title at the end of the day.

Many users over the forums have presented new fables regarding what this mystery AAA project could be, leading to some interesting speculations in the community. The leading idea suggests that the heavily-stylized part could refer to the Horizon multiplayer spin-off, as the world stylized has appeared in job listings for the game.

In the job listings for the project, the multiplayer Horizon game is noted to be an online entry with a “unique stylised look,” which indicates that it won’t consist of photorealistic visuals like the previous two prominent releases. Besides that weak link, it is still not confirmed to be the same title. Regardless, the entry also has been announced officially on Twitter while advertising the job listings, so it would not make sense for it to be the same.

All in all, we suggest taking the following news with a grain of salt, as many pieces of the puzzle are still missing to make a concrete conclusion. It has been stated many a time in the past that Sony is crafting multiple games hidden behind the curtains that are yet to be released in its job listings, and this could just be one of them. We may hear more about this project in the future as it develops.
