In a rare podcast appearance, PlayStation bigwig Jim Ryan promised that more acquisitions are on the way. This follows heavy rumors earlier in the week from industry pundits Greg Miller and Jeff Grubb, in which they hinted at a “really big” takeover. Ever since Microsoft bought Bethesda a few years ago, the companies have been racing studios for their empires, which has resulted in Sony snagging developers like Bungie, Housemarque, and more.

“We are growing through acquisition,” he told PlayStation Blogcast. “We acquired five studios over the course of 2021. We are in discussions with Bungie. And we have more planned. edition with the team led by Jade Raymond.

So who’s next, then? Who knows? Despite the chatter of a “really big” acquisition, it’s worth remembering that people familiar with trade deals like this will be legally obligated to keep their mouths shut. As such, you probably shouldn’t believe everything you read on social media. From what Jim says here, however, we’ll surely learn more once the ink dries.
