Starbreeze working on PSN title

Wednesday, 16th November 2011 12:14 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Starbreeze CEO Mikael Nermark has said the studio is working on a PSN game.

Speaking to PSM3 (via CVG), he admitted the Swedish studio was working on something smaller alongside Syndicate.

“We are actually doing it. Right now,” Nermark said, adding the title was “a self-financed thing.”

Regarding PSN in general, Nermark noted studios “have to understand how to utilise the new medium, so to speak, and understand that we have to build a game for the PSN instead of trying to do a big game.

“I think that’s the hardest part for us – to adjust when we’re doing the small stuff. Because as a studio, we think big.

“We can’t be that big when we’re making a PSN game. A big game can be anything between 120-200 staff, whereas a small project is one tenth of that, so you have to be able to understand how you handle your resources.”

The studio’s bigger project, Syndicate, launches next February for PS3, 360 and PC.

    @1 Ohh please. I remember playing the demo of Enclave a good 20 or so times.

    @2 I’m confused… the “Ohh please” sounds like a negative comment, where the “I remember playing the demo of Enclave a good 20 or so times.” sound positive…. so which one is it… or is it one of those mixed feelings one :P

    I had recently read that quite a few of the people that were behind the prior Starbreeze games had left and formed a new studio called Machinegames. They are working with Bethesda and are developing a game using ID tech 5, so that is something to look forward to.
    Syndicate is looking excellent so far.
