Since Sony acquired Insomniac Games , many have been wondering which will be the next great developer that will pass into the hands of the Japanese company. Especially after Microsoft’s big takeover of ZeniMax and Bethesda .
The fans demanded to Sony for months to buy Konami to stay with their popular franchises that have been forgotten for years. Even rumors claimed that the company would buy Take-Two Interactive , which never happened.
New rumors indicate that Sony has its sights set on Arc System Works , a studio known for its popular fighting games and franchises such as Guilty Gear and BlazBlue .
THEY SAY SONY WILL BUY ARC SYSTEM WORKS
According to various sources, including insider Dealer, Sony is planning to buy a new development studio. Everything indicates that the company has an interest in Arc System Works, a study that is a benchmark in fighting games.
In addition to the installments of Guilty Gear and BlazBlue , the developer has also delighted fans of the genre with titles such as Dragon Ball FighterZ , Persona 4 Arena and Granblue Fantasy Versus , just to mention a few.
Dealer indicates that Sony is already in discussions with Arc System Works for a possible purchase. The negotiations would be in an advanced stage, reason why some think that there could be news about it soon.
For some this makes sense, as Sony and PlayStation have bet over the years on fighting games. In addition, they recently bought EVO , the most important tournament for fans of the genre.
I’ve already hinted at the Ghost Of Tsushima Expansion coming. Details leaked shortly after.
Today it’s all about Sony Studio acquisitions…
Think Arc System Works.
Think Guilty Gear.

SHOULD YOU BELIEVE THIS INFORMATION ABOUT SONY AND ARC SYSTEM WORKS?
It is important to emphasize that for now everything is a rumor, since none of the companies has given indications of negotiations for a possible purchase. So it is best to wait for more information about it.
In the meantime, you should know that the insider Dealer hinted at the existence of an expansion for Ghost of Tsushima that will supposedly arrive this year. However, take into account that some doubt his information, since in the past he has not revealed many accurate data before his official disclosure.
