One of Sony’s biggest strengths over the years has been the depth they have in their exclusive software lineup, both in terms of quality and quantity. And with each passing generation, their efforts to strengthen that even further have only been getting more impressive. And it looks like that’s exactly what they’re going to continue to do.
As per a new job listing, Sony are looking to hire people to form a new development team to work on a new “high quality, third person, Action/Adventure” project in collaboration with Visual Arts Service Group (VASG), a production studio that has been known for its Motion Capture and Animation work on games such as Uncharted 4 and God of War, among others. What’s even more interesting is that the job ad claims the project will be developed in collaboration with yet another Sony studio, though what that studio is hasn’t been mentioned.
“This high visibility project is being developed in collaboration with a major Sony development studio,” the ad mentions. “Though currently unannounced, we have a clear vision and plan to release. The new game development team will leverage our existing expertise and premier talent, guaranteeing a high visual quality bar for the title.”
Interestingly enough, it looks like the studio this new team will be collaborating with might be Naughty Dog. As spotted by a ResetERA user, the LinkedIn profile of one Keridan Elliott claims that he’s working with Naughty Dog on not only The Last of Us: Part 2, but also another unannounced project.

You never know, though. Stay tuned to GamingBolt and we’ll keep you updated as more info comes our way.
