I wonder if they'll starting branching into new IP or keep sticking with the Astro IP. Either way, look forward to whatever they do next!

I agree friend :). Team Asobi's future looks promising. They're carrying on Japan Studio's legacy just fine I'd say.

It's too soon to say that, I think. Japan Studio was one of the most creative and varied devs out there. Definitely by far Sony's most creative.

And doing a good job on turning good profit with faster turn around time for new titles. Japan Studios for all the greatness it had, wasn`t achieiving good sales and took to long to release games.

I read a comment on this site with such a cool suggestion to progress the astro bot IP forward:
They should do whole levels themed after famous PlayStation-IP. Most of it could still be platforming, but with some differing forms of combat would be nice. Imagine an uncharted-level, or a bloodborne-level, or a god of wa-level in astrobot.
It could even be somewhat similar to the lego games in how they are a bit of a parody and an hommage to the source material they retell.
Little Big Planet did something similar with their DLC and a whole game around that concept would be really exciting for me. Also, it is quite an advantage to have built in marketing for other IP in your game.

Astro Bot Rescue Mission and Astro's Playroom are both excellent games, so I can't wait to play their next release.
