It has recently been revealed that Deviation Games, a PlayStation-backed studio founded in 2020 by Call of Duty veterans, was closed down before releasing any game. This disheartening news emerged from the former employees of the studio who claimed that it was developing an AAA shooter “in partnership” with PlayStation.
