Concrete Genie studio PixelOpus is working on a PlayStation 5 game, in collaboration with Sony Pictures Animation.
The news comes from several job listings (via VGC), one of which says, “We are seeking a Senior Engine Programmer with a generalist skillset to architect, implement, and modify runtime and tools features of PixelOpus’ engine technology and Unreal 5.”
Unreal Engine 5, you may remember, was shown off last year in an intriguing tech demo for a game that we will tragically never get, called “Lumen in the Land of Nanite.”
Concrete Genie was a curious game; it entailed scrawling the walls of a fishing town with luminous graffiti, and, rather than being a hymn to anti-establishment anger, it involved magic and spirits.
We don’t know anything about this upcoming game, other than that it will be an “exciting new PlayStation 5 title.”
#PixelOpus is hiring! We are hard at work on an exciting new PlayStation 5 title, and continuing to grow. Come and join us on this unique project within #PlayStationStudios!#PlayStation #SIE #hiring #Sonyhttps://t.co/nJidL5ADq6https://t.co/xsNUySVyjn

Elsewhere, the job listing states, “This position will contribute to our development process as we tackle exciting innovation and creative opportunities through a collaboration with Sony Pictures Animation.” Sony Pictures Animation is the studio behind Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and, more recently, The Mitchells vs. the Machines.
Whatever form this new game takes, it is likely one of the twenty-five new exclusive titles that Sony announced were in the works last month.
