New 'PlayStation Studios' Logo Introduced For Sony's Next-Gen Exclusives

It seems the new brand will be a consumer-facing logo focused on the games themselves, while the list of developers Sony owns will continue to be known collectively as Sony Worldwide Studios.

And Sony has released a new opening animation for the re-branding.

Video games and entertainment blogger Nibellion first spotted a listing on Japanese job recruitment website Rikunabi by Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE).

"Over the last few years - and even the last decade - the strength of the titles coming out from our studios has been stronger than ever", Lempel said.

We think this is a good way to let consumers know that, if they see it, then the quality games they've come to expect from us are here. With this, they've launched a brand new logo and a seventeen-second animated clip featuring all the fantastic exclusives these studios have been able to produce over these years.

Though Sony still hasn't officially told anyone when we can expect to hear more about the PlayStation 5, the scuttlebutt is that a PS5 reveal event will happen sometime in early June.

On the other hand, the animation is a bit more interesting, particularly since it looks nearly exactly like the opening logo animation from a recent Marvel movie. Of course, that doesn't meant that all of Sony's first party studios like Sucker Punch, Guerrilla, Santa Monica, Bend, Insomniac, Naughty Dog, and the rest will be losing their identity. This is not really surprising, the wait has been long and the information shared by Sony in recent weeks has fueled this thirst for new elements.

Unlike Microsoft, which has been showing off the Xbox Series X over the last couple of months, Sony has been annoyingly quiet about the PlayStation 5 so far. The studio's animated intro will also be shown in its PlayStation 4 titles, but it won't be ready for the upcoming summer releases of The Last of Us: Part II and Ghosts of Tsushima. For instance (and this hypothetical is mine), a future Uncharted game might have a PlayStation Studios animation that depicts the whole series from the 2007 original through the newest game.

As you will see in the following images from the documentation Sony submitted, the wizard will be able to inform you of various elements in the game and offer tips to help you make the most of your gaming sessions.

"We are all big Marvel fans".

"We will handle the trial purchasing of PlayStation hardware products".

The aim of the brand is to get all first party titles under one unified brand.
