Sony to announce project at E3 from new studio Pixelopus

Sony Computer Entertainment's newest internal studio is called Pixelopus, and the company is working on a title that is set to be revealed at E3, reports the New York Times.

According to the Times, Alex Lee, an executive producer at Sony Computer Entertainment America, helped teach a game development course at Carnegie Mellon University. Students in that class were working on prototypes for PS Vita games, and some of those individuals ended up working at Sony in internships and then jobs.

The Times reports that those developers, along with others at Sony, have been making a game that will be the first title from a new studio known as Pixelopus. There's no word yet on where the team is located; Sony Computer Entertainment currently maintains 13 different internal studios across North America, Europe and Japan under its Worldwide Studios banner.

We've reached out to Sony for more information, and will update this article with any information we receive. Sony's E3 2014 press briefing will begin at 6 p.m. PDT on June 9, and will be aired in a number of U.S. movie theaters.
