Yesterday 24 September, Ready a Dawn, a study co-founded by our Andrea Pessino, turned 16 years old. The developers, well known to PlayStation 4 users for creating The Order: 1886, celebrated the important anniversary with a party in their studios.
The wishes of some important representatives of the videogame industry are not lacking, among which the guys from Sony Santa Monica and the director of God of War, Cory Barlog, undoubtedly stand out. There is a special relationship between the two development studios: Ready at Dawn, if you remember it, has developed two well-liked spin-offs of the Kratos series, namely Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta, both launched on PSP and then also landed on PS3 in the Origins Collection.
In his heartfelt message of greetings, Barlog took the opportunity to compliment Ready at Dawn for the excellent work done on the Spartan’s saga, to which he himself contributed as Story Writer: “Hurray for these fantastic 16 years “It was an honour and a privilege to work with the talented Ready at Dawn developers. Ghost of Sparta remains one of my favourite Kratos journeys, and it’s all thanks to the incredible team of developers you’ve put together.”
In addition to the aforementioned titles, in the curriculum of the boys of Ready at Dawn, there are also Daxter for PSP and the conversion of Okami for Nintendo Wii. Following the launch of The Order: 1886, the team stopped working exclusively for Sony, and after publishing Deformers it was entirely dedicated to the development of virtual reality games for Oculus Rift, namely Lone Echo, Echo Arena and Echo Combat. In 2020, instead, they will publish Lone Echo II.
Congrats to an incredible 16 years!
