As Microsoft has spent the last twelve months adding eight new studios to their first party lineup, Sony has been sat on the sidelines watching. Well, it looks like Sony will be following in Microsoft’s footsteps and acquiring more studios in the coming months if a new job listing is to be believed.
That job listing states the following:
Sony PlayStation is looking for an M&A Program Manager with 2-3 years’ of relevant corporate experience for a 6-9 month contract position. The M&A Program Manager will support the company in the due diligence process and put together project timelines to ensure that all acquisition integration activities are on track.
The phrase “acquisition integration activities” makes it sound like Sony is looking at buying some new studios in the coming months and they need someone to help with integrating them into PlayStation’s Worldwide Studios ecosystem.
But, who will it be? People have long thought that Sony should acquire Housemarque, the developer of the fantastic Resogun and the upcoming Stormdivers. It is hard to think of anyone else that Sony has had a long-standing relationship with. Who do you think will be acquired?
