PlayStation Experience ‘Notebook’ teaser hints at new David Jaffe action IP

From The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency.

PlayStation Experience Notebook Teaser

Sony published a new teaser video for next week’s PlayStation Experience event today, and all signs point to it being related to The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency, a game company founded by Twisted Metal and God of War creator David Jaffe alongside Nick Kononelos.

The video, dubbed “Notebook,” shows someone drawing in a notebook and ripping up the pages. Before the last page is ripped, at about 18 seconds in, a URL to a website can be found: bartletjones.com/haunted.

Visiting the aforementioned website offers another video—a rather weird and creepy video which ends with David Jaffe in an apparently crazed state.

Further investigation brings us to the Bartlet Jones’ LinkedIn page, which reveals the studio—comprised of former Sony Computer Entertainment America staff—to be working on a new action IP.

The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency is a new game development studio located in the heart of San Diego’s Gaslamp District. The company is headed up by David Jaffe (God of War, Twisted Metal) and Nick Kononelos (SCEA) and the agency’s Technical Director is longtime industry vet and rockstar programmer Michael Riccio (SCEA, High Moon Studios). Our company is fully funded and is currently creating our first game- an action title based on an original IP. We are actively searching for talented teammates to join the agency (especially programmers with Unity and/or online experience).

Thanks for the help, NeoGAF.
