The first year of PS5 was characterized by the launch of various titles that ended up coming out on PS4, and many did not view this intergenerational leap favorably. However, among all these games that were in the first batch, Returnal, Demon’s Souls and Ratchet & Clank: A Dimension Apart stood out because they arrived exclusively for the new generation of consoles.
In fact, given what happened with these games, Housemarque and Bluepoint, respective development teams of the first two games, ended up being acquired by Sony after the success of Returnal and Demon’s Souls, becoming be part of PlayStation Studios and currently having new titles in development. However, in recent hours it has become known that Returnal director no longer involved in the new Housemarque project.

Under this premise, it has been announced that Harry Krueger, who directed Returnal at the time, has announced that he will leave the Helsinki-based company, thus being puts an end to a 14-year employment relationship. Of course, as he states, it has not been an easy decision, since, as he has expressed on the Housemarque website, his journey has been very difficultbut he is confident that the most brilliant chapter of the study has not yet been written.
In this way, Krueger states that the journey at Housemarque has been incrediblefeeling very lucky to work on one dream project after another and with talented and wonderful people along the way, highlighting the journey from arcade-inspired titles to Returnalwhich has undoubtedly made the studio earns a name within the video game industry.
Be that as it may, we will have to see what comes in the future after Returnal in Housemarque, since to date what is brewing in their offices beyond the launch last year of Returnal on PC is a mystery. However, knowing that they have had the trust of Sony, it is quite likely that what they may have on their hands will be remarkable. For the rest, remember that Returnal is available on PS5 and PC.
