Haven Studios are currently working on their first game, which will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive and seemingly a live service multiplayer game, judging by the info from the official job listings.

You may remember that Sony announced a new partnership with with newly-established studio Haven, earlier this year. This studio, led by Jade Raymond, who worked on Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs and a couple of other franchises during her's career, will be developing a brand new exclusive for Sony's new console PlayStation 5.

Not a lot has been said about the game when the parties announced this partnership, in fact, Sony and Raymond said nothing, so we're probably waiting for a couple of more years before we actually get to see and play this game.

However, thanks to a couple of  official job listings on LinkedIn , we may have got first, tiny bits of details about the game.

Haven Studios are looking to fill in a couple of positions including Senior Software Engineer, Tools Engineer, Online Software Engineer and Senior Infrastructure Engineer.

The job description mention that the ideal candidates would be involved in "the design and implementation of systems with a huge amount of players".

Additionally there's a mention of "long term maintenance", which could suggest that the game is a live service title.

Of course, don't take this as gospel since it's just a job listing and nothing more; there are no official details for the game and until we get more of those, everything is just speculation, guessing and nothing more.

If the job listing is indeed legit, then it's really interesting to see Sony investing in multiplayer, live-service game, which is something they have not done in a while for PlayStation.

Usually it's all about third-person action adventures at PlayStation HQ, which certainly is something the publisher are quite good at.
