The new San Diego-based development team established by Sony is working on existing franchises, according to the LinkedIn profile of Michael Mumbauer, a former Studio Head/Senior Director of Visual Arts.
Here’s the full description featured on Mumbauer’s profile, which confirms he has a major role within the company.
His latest achievement is having built a brand new, all-star, AAA Action/Adventure development team for Playstation. Based in San Diego and utilizing proprietary engine technology, this team was assembled to expand upon existing franchises and craft all new stories for the next generation of gamers.
This is the new studio that has been rumored to be working on a fresh entry in the Uncharted franchise, after creator Naughty Dog finished up on the series with 2017’s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Sony hasn’t announced anything official at this point, though.
Whatever the studio is working on, you can bet it’ll end up on the PS5. Will it turn out to be a new Uncharted? We can only hope!
