Sony has renewed the rights to exploit the logo (the famous owl) and the name Psygnosis, an English company acquired by the Japanese company in 1993 with the aim of developing exclusive games for the first PlayStation. Psygnosis was then closed in 2007 and renamed the Liverpool Studio, which was closed in 2012.
We don’t know exactly what the brand renewal is about, it could be very trivially bureaucratic necessity to keep the rights to use the name but it is not said that Sony really wants to bring this brand back to life. It is true that PlayStation Studios is focusing heavily on Europe and in particular on English studies (as shown by Sony’s acquisition of Firesprite), so who knows that the name Psygnosis cannot really be pro
The British company is still being remembered with great affection as Barbarian and Barbarian II, Colony Wars, Deep Space, the Destruction Derby series, the Formula One series on PlayStation (1997-1999), G-P
Surely a return that could make the joy of nostalgics, even if as said there are no certainties about it and renewal could be linked only to bureaucratic issues without the real will to bring back to life this historic brand of the European video gaming industry.
