May has been fairly quiet for the games industry. Besides Transistor, Wolfenstein: The New Order, and Watch Dogs, there hasn't been many big game releases. Now, with E3 just a few short weeks away, expect a new trickle of gaming news to come in.
Sony this past weekend revealed an unannounced project in a New York Times article focused on New York University's Game Center. The publisher, in conjunction with a new, untested studio called Pixel Opus, plans to show off a new game at E3 2014. Pixel Opus is comprised of ex-students from NYU who landed internships, and then eventually jobs at Sony.
No details were specified beyond that. The article talked mainly about a class taught by Sony executive producer Alex Lee that focused on development for the PS Vita. It's likely that Pixel Opus's next work will be for the handheld. If that proves to be the case, then it's good to see that Sony, despite the PS Vita's tough sales figures, hasn't lost interest in its handheld console yet. The Vita has become a handheld console for indie and smaller titles to shine. Hopefully, Pixel Opus's unknown title will follow in those footsteps.
