It looks like reports of Sony Interactive Entertainment acquiring new developer Ballistic Moon were true. Following a blooper by none other than PlayStation itself, fans have found an entry for the studio on a financial data and software company’s website, which lists Sony as its parent company.
Ballistic Moon comprises of former Supermassive Games leads
As spotted by Sacred Symbols podcast host Colin Moriarty, a financial services firm called PitchBook tracks data such as company financing and funding, acquisition status, and more. Over on its website is an entry for Ballistic Moon, which states that the studio was founded in 2019 and its current status is “acquired/merged (operating subsidiary).” Its parent company? Sony, of course.
PitchBook also reveals that the developer currently has 47 employees and operates in the “movies, music, and entertainment” industry. You can view a snapshot of the page below, in case Sony’s lawyers are having it scrubbed as we speak.
Welp! File this under Sony’s worst-kept secrets.
As we previously reported, Ballistic Moon developers are no strangers to working with Sony. Job listings have previously revealed that the company, which is comprised of former Supermassive Games leads, is currently working on a PS5 game code named Project Bates.
