Sony’s gaming division said Friday it has agreed to buy “God of War” developer Valkiri Entertainment in an undisclosed amount because it wants to add more muscle to its PlayStation studio.
The deal marks the fifth acquisition of Sony Interactive Entertainment after acquiring Nexus Software, “Returnal” developer Housemark, Bluepoint Games and Firefighting.
During last year’s lockdown, people turned to video games for entertainment, schools reopened and COVID-19 restrictions eased but still slowed down.
The Seattle-based Valkyrie, which also makes other popular titles such as “Twisted Metal” and “Infames” and has also worked in the “Forza Motorsport” franchise, will be managed by its current management team.
Herman Halst, head of PlayStation Studios, said: Tweet That will make an “invaluable contribution” to the Valkiri Division franchise.
The requirements for the God of War PC system were recently announced by Santa Monica Studios. The detailed breakdown of system requirements includes five separate settings that allow fans of action RPG games to play it without having to spend much to upgrade their PC. In addition, the Sony-owned studio has released a trailer showing new features for PC, including improved graphics and effects. God of War will launch on PC on January 14.
