Hulst remembers that they started working with them at the beginning of 2021. In fact, on March 16 of last year we told you about the collaboration between both companies. “From the beginning we were inspired by Haven’s vision to create a modern multiplayer experience that brings players together in a positive and enriching way. We rely on his creative and technical expertise to deliver such an ambitious project, and we’re excited to be able to invest in his journey developing an original new IP for PlayStation.”
Jade Raymond, CEO and founder of Haven Studios, previews the creative vision for her first project. “Our first PlayStation IP is on track to deliver a AAA multiplayer experience with a vision to create a systematic, evolving world centered on freedom, excitement and joy that will keep players entertained and engaged for years to come.” She already anticipated it in October 2021: they want to achieve a “social platform for generations.”
