Sony’s London Studio, the team behind trailblazing PSVR content PlayStation VR Worlds (2016) and Blood & Truth (2019), are making a new online co-op combat game that the studio calls its “most ambitious title to date,” but it doesn’t feature VR support.

Co-studio head Tara Saunders describes London Studio’s next project in an SIE blogpost:

As the principal studio behind some of PSVR’s most imaginative and leading content, we were certainly hoping for something similar to come to the next-gen follow-up, PSVR 2, which is due out sometime early next year.
