Haven Studios, the studio directed by Jade Raymond (producer of titles such as Assassin’s Creed Y Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots), is working on a video game exclusive to PlayStation 5 with elements of online multiplayer and game-as-a-service, as indicated by the job offers that the company has published on LinkedIn.
How they report from GamingBolt, on the LinkedIn profile of the Canadian company they look for a senior software engineer with multiplayer experience, in marketing and connectivity. There are three other positions on offer, two of them related to online games: a senior infrastructure engineer and an online software engineer.
The same media points out that these types of jobs are usually covered once the game has entered development, so the work of Haven Studios must be, supposedly, in the pre-production stages. It was in March that PlayStation announced the collaboration with the studio just founded by Raymond, who also laid the foundations for EA Motive.
The study gave an unspecific description of the type of game they want to make from which it can be deduced that it will have an important multiplayer component: “We want to create worlds where players can escape, have fun, express themselves and find a community. We want to put our passion into a project. We want to do something wonderful so that people experience“.
Raymond was previously vice president of Stadia Games & Entertainment, the division dedicated to game development that Google closed in February. Six veterans who accompanied her on her journey through the technology company have moved to Haven Studios: they are artists, engineers, interface creators and others.
