During the past few years, PlayStation may at one point entertain the idea of recreating some of its most loved assets in new, modern iterations that will use today’s technology. This information came through a former Sony employee who recently began talking about some secret work he did in his time at a PlayStation studio.
Speaking to David Juff, the previous director of the title God of war And Folded metal, Michael San Diego, former head of Sony San Diego Studios, talked a bit about what his role was when he was there. Mumbaur’s main location was previously to lead a visual arts group that would provide support to other Sony studios, but over time, this began to change.
Mumbauer explained that during Shai Leyden’s tenure as head of SIE Worldwide Studios, the one-time boss was very interested in searching for remakes and remasters for current hardware. Mumbaur specifically pointed out Crash Bandicoot and Sane Trilogy As an example of such a project that Leyden apparently helped to roll the ball. As the initiative gained great traction within Sony as a whole, Mumbauer explained that a new development team at Sony San Diego was again put together to pursue this venture.
“Remakes and remasters were the things I was following. That is why the Dev Team was created, ”Mumbaur said in a conversation. “What I can tell you is what I was following because I believed there was value in doing something like a remake God of war On today’s visual fidelity. Or, is a remake of Unreserved 1 On today’s visual fidelity. “
It is worth noting that Mumbauer never stated that his team at Sony San Diego Studios began proper work on a PlayStation remake of any kind. Instead, he just notes that it was something he was looking for at one point. Also unsure if Mumbaur was just using God of war And Unsolved As generalized examples of possible remakes or if they are qualities they might have actively seen in remaking.
If it was at one point that Sony was relocating to San Diego, this no longer seems to be the case. Even though Mumbaur is not with the studio, this secret dev team, which still exists and includes about 200 people, is now working on an unknown new title. Some people have proven that this project can be Spam 5, But this has not yet been proved correct.
All in all, it is surprising to learn that PlayStation would have seriously looked into some major remakes like a few years ago. Whereas the title like MediEvil, Shadow of great man, And Parappa the Rapper Were remade or remastered, it would be interesting to see the same treatment given to some other major titles.
So what do you think Will you be down to watch remakes and remakes of some of Yestrior’s most popular PlayStation games making a comeback on PS5? As always, you can give me your thoughts in comments or on Twitter @ MooreMan12.
