They let QuanticDream "go" when they had the chance all along, they are rather similar IMO.
Neither are setting the world on fire, if anything QD would have been a better purchase because they do more with less (financially) so would be more profitable I think.
Also every time I asked about Tidux people here said he's full of shit and doesn't know anything (got the same response over at QQera when I used it), so I'm keeping that in mind.
They have a lot of potential and their games are not bad, although i still need to finish Control on PC (got it free with 2080 Super), otherwise i wouldn't have purchased the game. They already have a lot of experience right now with ray tracing, so i'm curious what they can create if they develop for only one console!
I do think they are a larger studio then Ninja Theory.
It's no secret that Sony developers trade tech/knowledge all the time. If Remedy has access to the brain trust, I trust them to make a good game. I never played Quantum Break or Control because I just haven't had the time to dive into those titles, but I've never heard bad things about those games, just also haven't heard a ton of good things. I could definitely go for a sequel to Alan Wake, especially if the vision gets enhanced as a result of Sony's collaboration between studios.
Definetly wrong considering that they dropped them (likely because both Beyond and Detroit failed to reach the expected critical and commercial targets plus the studio got hit with lawsuits and tons of stories about a toxic working environment).
About this news...I don't know if the sources are trustworthy, actually I know that Tidux definetly isn't
But at this point the safest bets are Blue Point and Kojima Productions.
Many people continue to mention Remedy and I guess it might happen but it wouldn't be the typical Sony acquisition story, Sony typically buys studios with a common story of success together. Remedy doesn't qualify.
Right now they aren't a big AAA team, so depends. They have a good potential and could make a good match with traditional sony's style of games (third person, single player story driven games).
Partnering with WWS could lead to a massive upgrade in scope, ambition, budget and possibilities, but not always this is synonymous with success.
