The Housemarque team joined the PlayStation family just a few days ago.
Just a few days after making the Housemarque purchase official, PlayStation has updated its official Web including the team responsible for great titles such as the formidable Nex Machina in its list of studios along with Naughty Dog, Insomniac Games and other relevant teams. What’s interesting about this update is the mention they make of Returnal, their latest PS5 exclusive, which they describe as a “mega hit.”
Housemarque already thinks about the future, and they promise to go further than with ReturnalUnfortunately PlayStation has not shared specific sales data of this challenging roguelike action video game, so we do not know to what extent it has been a “mega success”, nor can we compare it with the sales of other titles. Although it is good news that at last this team has apparently managed to achieve success with one of their video games, as to date, and despite the enormous quality of their work, they have never enjoyed spectacular sales.
So much so that Housemarque came to say only a few years ago that arcade games are dead, departing from a genre in which they had become true masters. “The recent release of Returnal shows that Housemarque it’s a studio with incredible insight, capable of creating new memorable games that resonate with our community, “declared the head of PlayStation a few days ago, after announcing the purchase.
With the support of a great company behind it, Housemarque has also declared that in the future they will go further than with Returnal, without giving clues about what will be the next project from one of the studios that have best dealt with arcade action in recent decades. If you haven’t had a chance to read it, we recommend you take a look at our Returnal review to find out why it has become one of the most acclaimed games in recent months.
