PlatinumGames has four total announcements to make, and they've just made the third. The developer has opened a brand new studio in Tokyo, which will be opening its doors in April 2020.
The announcement comes from the PlatinumGames forum, where studio President Sato reveals details on the new studio. Sato writes that the expansion of a new studio in Tokyo largely comes as a result of the deal with Tencent in December 2019, where Tencent invested capital into the studio.
Further down the post on the PlatinumGames website, studio head Atsushi Inaba writes about plans for the new Tokyo studio. "So far, the name PlatinumGames has been nearly synonymous with single-player action games," Inaba writes. "But going forward, we're looking to expand into new genres and styles of play."
Inaba goes on to write that the studio in Tokyo will be responsible for "live ops development." In other words, the studio is going to be responsible for updating live games with new content well after the initial release date, perhaps giving in indication about the genres PlatinumGames is looking to expand into.
At the very bottom of the post, PlatinumGames' "current projects" are listed out. There's Babylon's Fall, which we'll be seeing more of this Summer, Bayonetta 3, which we've heard next to nothing about since 2017, and Project G.G., the newly-revealed action game directed by Hideki Kamiya.
PlatinumGames still has one final announcement to make. Kamiya recently teased in Famitsu Weekly that it would be "very interesting." Interpret that how you will.
