It looks like Sony Computer Entertainment has just opened a new studio in the North West of England, one that will be focusing on creating games for Project Morpheus, Sony’s upcoming virtual reality device.

The UK PlayStation Jobs website has posted listings for a number of positions for SCE North West Studio, including a lead artist, a level designer, and a character animator, ¬†and noted that the company is looking to build a “highly experienced team” that will “create original games exclusively for Project Morpheus.”

An exciting and rare opportunity to join an ambitious new studio to create original games exclusively for Project Morpheus, PlayStation’s VR platform. Based in the North West of England, we aim to build a small but highly experienced team who want to build great games to showcase this exciting new immersive technology.

Project Morpheus is expected to come out in the first half of 2016, and hopefully this new studio will give it a few games to run right off the bat. What types of games do you want to see on the virtual reality device?
