Sony have created a new department called “Third Party Production” for their PlayStation business. This group, which is part of PlayStation’s Third Party Relations team will work closely with publishers to bring their games to Sony platforms.
Here’s what to expect, says Gio Corsi, Director of Third Party Production for Sony Computer Entertainment America:
This means you’ll see even more great games on PlayStation platforms, including new IP’s, ports, and localized products. In addition, our partners who are currently in production will have us as a resource to strengthen their development process, ensuring quality and consistency on all Third Party projects.
The Third Party Production groups’ first project is a port of Borderlands 2 for Vita. Sony announced recently that they were publishing the game themselves.
