Sony declared toward the beginning of September that Firesprite Games is joining the PlayStation Studios family, an organization set up in 2012 by previous individuals from SIE Studio Liverpool. 

And today, Firesprite reported it had acquired Manchester-based Fabrik Games, "bringing Firesprite’s total studio headcount to 265 as of September 29, 2021." Hence, Fabrik Games is also going to be a part of PlayStation Studios.

Other than the acquisition, another piece of information is circulating on the web, that both Firesprite and Fabrik Games are working on a new AAA science fiction/horror title.

5 months back, Fabrick Games posted a job listing for a "lead artist to work on a AAA sci-fi/horror title". The mentioned job listing has been posted 5 months back and was found on Fabrik Games LinkedIn page.

So while there are high chances that a lot must have changed since then, yet there's a possibility that the process of acquisition was underway, and probably both the teams were working on this new title since then. 

While announcing the acquisition, Ankers said, "I'm delighted to announce that we will be bringing Fabrik Games and Firesprite together as part of our exciting next step with PlayStation Studios."

Moreover, in the announcement blog of Firesprite, it has been mentioned that "They are a team of passionate and committed developers, led by industry veterans who have worked on many AAA franchises. We’re looking forward to bolstering our creative talent as we continue on our journey to offer truly unique experiences for PlayStation fans."

Other than the LinkedIn page, the latest job listing on Fabrik Games Career page is likewise looking for an individual with "Good knowledge of skinning, rigging, and basic animation" and "Traditional art skills are a plus, such as life drawing, illustration, sculpting, etc…"

The mentioned job listing is for a Senior Character Artist, who will get to "work on an exciting AAA project" as per the description. The applying candidate needs to have "Experience with character and creature anatomy", "Experience shipping AAA or indie titles".

This job listing is also about the AAA title, which increases the possibility of AAA sci-fi/horror title being in production by both teams since they have co-developed The Persistence game together in the past as well.

However, presently there's no chance of knowing whether this science fiction project is something that Firesprite and Fabrik Games are actually working on, or this will be a project from Fabrik Games that will be created along with a supposed narrative adventure game from Firesprite. 

Whatever be the case, if the new title is going to be a science fiction horror game, then it would be a great step to include a captivating franchise inside the genres offered by PlayStation Studios.
