Sony are preparing a bid to buy Finnish studio Remedy who would join the publisher's impressive roster which includes Naughty Dog, Guerrilla and more. This could mean that potential Alan Wake or Control sequels could become PS exclusives.

According to the latest report from PushSquare, Sony could soon start negotiations with the creators of Max Payne, Alan Wake and Control - Remedy Entertainment - over a potential acquisition.

Apparently, Remedy could become Sony's latest acquisition and join the publisher's impressive roster which includes studios like Naughty Dog, Guerrilla Games, Bend Studio, Sucker Punch and Media Molecule among others.

"We’ve heard from a number of sources that Sony is lining up a bid," says PushSquare and clarifies that Remedy are "unlikely to be particularly open to the idea of an acquisition" as they maintained "independence over the years".

However, If the acquisition happens, this could also mean that Remedy's new titles could become exclusives for Sony's consoles - PlayStation 4 and the next-gen PlayStation.

Earlier this week, Remedy acquired publishing rights for Alan Wake franchise, and now finally have everything in their own hands. Could this move cast some doubt on a potential bid from Sony? Well, it's hard to tell at the moment but one thing is for certain, the Japanese publisher really like Remedy. 

Earlier this year, Sony's Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida visited Remedy at their office and had a chance to play their upcoming action-adventure Control. That probably was not the only reason Yoshida was there and it's possible that Sony and Remedy have something else in store. 

Maybe a potential exclusive for PlayStation or some other project? We also know that Quantum Break creator Thomas Puha visited both Naughty Dog and Insomniac Games in quick succession, which could suggest a potential collaboration between the studios. 

At the moments there are no details or info to confirm this, only speculation and rumours, so we'll just have to wait and see.
