PlayStation acquires Jade Raymond’s Haven Studios

PlayStation Studios is growing once more. Sony said on Monday that it has agreed to buy Haven Studios, a new development company managed by Jade Raymond, formerly of Ubisoft Toronto, EA Motive, and Google‘s Stadia Games and Entertainment.

The Montreal-based studio is working on a new PlayStation property called “AAA multiplayer experience.”

Sony began working with Raymond and his team early last year, according to Hermen Hulst, head of PlayStation Studios. “From their first pitch, we were inspired by Haven’s vision for creating a modern multiplayer experience that brings gamers together in positive and meaningful ways,” Hulst said in a post on the PlayStation Blog. “We were confident in their creative and technical expertise to deliver on such an ambitious project and were thrilled to invest in their journey developing a new, original IP for PlayStation.

Haven has over 60 staff and is growing, according to a Sony press statement. Along with the newly purchased Bungie, Bluepoint Games, Housemarque, Firesprite, and Nixxes Software, it’s the 18th studio to join PlayStation Studios. Sony revealed in February that by 2026, it expects to release and support “more than 10 live-service games,” a collection of multiplayer experiences that very certainly includes Haven’s undisclosed offering.
