PlayStation Studios Signs Exclusive Deal for New Multiplayer Game -- Market Talk

Dow Jones International | Sarah Needleman, Wall Street Journal -

1001 ET - Sony's PlayStation Studios says it has signed an exclusive deal to publish a new multiplayer game already two years into development from the startup Firewalk Studios. Exclusive games can help console makers stand apart from one another and last fall both Sony and Microsoft launched next-generation consoles that are still in high demand due to supply shortages. Sony says the new game will be anchored by an original narrative and that Firewalk will have access to the same high-end resources as its own game studios. Firewalk employs industry veterans Tony Hsu, Ryan Ellis and Elena Siegman, who worked on the hit shooter franchise "Destiny." (; @saraheneedleman)
