Sony Computer Entertainment America has formed a new publishing group called Third Party Production which will be headed up by former LucasArts lead producer Gio Corsi.
“The Third Party Relations team at PlayStation is well known for developing solid relationships across this industry, and this new group will work closely with our publishing partners to bring their beloved IPs to some new places,” Corsi wrote on the PlayStation Blog.
“Our partners who are currently in production will have us as a resource to strengthen their development process, ensuring quality and consistency on all Third Party projects.”
Its first project is the PlayStation Vita version of Borderlands 2 from Iron Galaxy Studios, and through Twitter Corsi reported he had received “literally hundreds of ideas, thousands of tweets,” from gamers suggesting other titles they’d like to see on PlayStation.
Corsi has been at Sony Computer Entertainment America for three months. Prior to that he spent time at LucasArts, Lucasfilm Animation Singapore, Nexon Publishing North America and Propaganda Games.
