PS5 horror game in the works at an unannounced studio

Trust internet sleuths to uncover things you wouldn’t otherwise notice. ResetEra user Toumari somehow discovered an unannounced studio called Swizzle Kiss that is working on a PS5 horror game. The studio, which appears to have around 10-15 developers (including industry veterans) employed, is not only fully funded, but also a PlayStation partner.

What we know about the mysterious studio and its PS5 horror game

Swizzle Kiss is directed by Alicia Conte, who previously worked on The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe while serving as a director at her development studio Crows Crows Crows. She is joined by Jessica Curry from Dear Esther and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. Other names attached to the studio include Arshea Bimal (formerly a producer at Funomena), and Tom Schley and William Pugh, who were both Conte’s colleagues when she worked on The Stanley Parable.

“We are creating a premium single-player narrative horror game for PlayStation 5 + PC,” reads the job description for a lead programmer. “We are fully funded and partners of Sony PlayStation.”

Swizzle Kiss doesn’t have much of an internet presence as it’s still unannounced, but from what we’ve gathered, they are headquartered in Berlin, Germany. The studio has expressed a preference for applicants who have shipped games on PlayStation.

Last but not least, Gematsu’s Sal Romano found the above image in a code on the webpage that advertises the aforementioned work, but it might not be related to the game. Fans have speculated that the game d PS5 horror is said to be a sort of indie rather than a full-fledged AAA experience, but Sony has partnered with a number of indie studios that work on AAA games, so you never know.

In other news, it looks like some PS1 classics in the new PS Plus will support trophies, and the Assassin’s Creed Origins 60fps PS5 patch could drop next week.
