Sony Buys Housemarque, the Developers of Returnal


By Ray Ampoloquio June 29, 2021

Housemarque is now officially part of the PlayStation Studios family. 

Sony recently announced its acquisition of the Helsinki-based studio behind the recent PS5-exclusive, Returnal. 

Housemarque is the 13th studio under the PlayStation Studios banner, which includes the likes of Naughty Dogs, Guerilla Games, Insomniac Games, and Sucker Punch.

Returnal was the first AAA title that Housemarque had worked on and its success likely played a role in the Sony acquisition. 

It'll be interesting to see what Sony has in store for Housemarque after it proved itself with Returnal.

The ending of Returnal was confusing, to say the least. However, it did pave the way for a potential sequel, expansion, or DLC. 

Here's to hoping that Housemarque has just an amazing game in store for the rest of us.
