Ex COD people with a studio expansion quick on the heals of Activision buyout. Id imagine Sony has more than a partnership in mind now!
And wouldn't have to spend like Microsoft

Opening a second studio before they've even shipped their first game? Talk about confidence! I wonder if Sony had anything to do with the expansion, based on their existing partnership they (Sony) may be happy with what they're working on and are buttering them up for a purchase... or maybe that's just overthinking it, lol.

Who can tell perhaps they even co-financed the second studio. Oh well more studios I'd usually a good thing.

Yeah that's what I was referencing to with the "buttering them up", co-finance a new studio to entice them into becoming first party lol. I mean, we have nothing to go off yet other than these theories we're creating, it all makes sense and I could absolutely see it happening, but y'know lol. Let's see what they put out before getting there :P

Cause it's Canada. Bob in Nova Scotia definitely has no problem moving to Vancouver or wherever he has to go to work there. It's just a couple hour drive eh...

Hopefully their game(s) turn out good and Sony acquires them.
