PlayStation owners will definitely want to hear about this little tidbit of news we found over at the official PlayStation blog. Michael Shorrock, director of third-party relations at Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA), noted that they would be making a new franchise meant specifically for the PlayStation 3. More importantly, this franchise is said to be "all new," and will not be LA Noire.
"As part of our longstanding relationship with Rockstar," Sharrock writes, "and the incredible success for both companies with the cultural icon that is Grand Theft Auto, we’ve agreed to the PlayStation exclusive rights of the next great franchise from the Rockstar studios." They've yet to note what this new deal with Rockstar is all about, but we're hoping more details about the deal and the new game will be revealed in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, it's a wonderful moment for speculation. What do you think about this new deal, and what do you think will this new game be about?
