Sony has announced that they are working with Haven a new Montreal-based Independent Studio founded by Jade Raymond. Haven is hard at work crafting an unannounced Sony IP. Jade Raymond is at the helm of Haven being a huge player in the game industry working most recently with Google, EA, and Ubisoft in leadership roles. Here are a few statements from Jade Raymond regarding what Haven is all about.
As I took stock of my career over the last few years and started to think about what to do next, I came to a very simple conclusion: I need to get back to what I love doing most and do so in a way that gives our team the freedom to explore, inspire, and create.
And so today I’m announcing Haven, an independent studio where many of the talented game developers I have worked with for years (and love dearly!) are coming together to do what we are most passionate about. It’s time for us to refocus on GAMES in a place where we can practice our crafts without any barriers or impediments. We want to create worlds where players can escape, have fun, express themselves, and find community. We want to pour our passion into a project. We want to make something wondrous for people to experience. Because we believe in the power of games to bring joy to people’s lives. And Sony does, too. Their commitment to excellence is unmatched. It’s why I couldn’t be happier for their backing and support.
We will get more info as soon as the title is read to be shown, You can read more over at Playstation for the full press release.
