Sony began its PlayStation Showcase by announcing a new title from former Assassin’s Creed boss, Jade Raymond, and the team over at PlayStations studio, Haven. The game is called Fairgame$, and it appears to be a heist-themed multiplayer action title.
No release date of any kind was given in the trailer, but Fairgames is heading to PlayStation 5 and PC.
“We founded Haven with the goal of making the kind of games we all love to play. As huge fans of competitive multiplayer experiences, Fairgame$ came from a desire to create a new type of PvP game with emergent sandbox gameplay. We want to deliver a fresh multiplayer experience that rewards creativity and mastery and delivers surprising stories each and every time you play,” creative director Mathieu Leduc said in a blog post.
“In a nutshell, this is a thrilling competitive heist game where you join an underground movement to rob the ultra-rich and rebalance the scales,” Leduc said.
Sony has been investing heavily in the live-service market, so it’s not surprising to see a live-service game among the PlayStation Showcase lineup. The gaming giant plans to have 12 live-service games coming in the next few years.
Haven was acquired by Sony last year, with PlayStation’s Herman Hulst stating the company was “inspired by Haven’s vision for creating a modern multiplayer experience that brings gamers together in positive and meaningful ways,” confident the studio can deliver on such an ambitious project.
