Firesprite was acquired by Sony in 2021 to become part of its PlayStation Studios ecosystem.
Up until this point, we knew that the London-based studio was co-developing Horizon Call of the Mountain for PlayStation VR 2, in collaboration with Guerrilla Games. Furthermore, Firesprite may have taken over the development of the Twisted Metal reboot.
But there’s more:
According to one of their job listings, Firesprite is reportedly developing a new high-budget, AAA horror game using Unreal Engine 5. This new AAA video game would be in development for PlayStation 5.
We are looking for a narrative director to join our development team for a AAA narrative driven horror-adventure game in Unreal 5
The narrative director is responsible for the project storytelling, helping establish & consider the game’s universe and lore, with responsibility for the quality implementation of narrative content for project milestones and ultimately the game’s release.
At the moment we don’t know if it would be a new IP, or if this new AAA horror videogame would belong to a saga owned by Sony, like Siren.
