According to new employee Garrett Fredley, Playstation has set up a new game preservation team.

Previously a build engineer for mobile developer Kabam, Garrett Fredley has recently joined the Playstation as a senior build engineer: In celebration, Fredley posted on his Twitter and LinkedIn pages excited to be joining the preservation team. “Today is my first day as a senior build engineer for PlayStation, working as one of their initial hires for the newly created Preservation team,” they stated.

“Game preservation was my first career passion. It was my first foray into the world of software engineering / dev ops, and into a world that so many are unaware of. I was just a novice back then, contributing any way I could regardless of my inexperience. Now, I’m back to it, no longer the novice I once was. Thank you Mike Bishop and the team for bringing me on board for this adventure, let’s go and ensure our industry’s history isn’t forgotten.”

Having worked with EA for 4 years (2016 – 2019), and had “solely led the preservation efforts for the FIFA franchise, resulting in the complete archival of multiple titles”.

It’s not entirely clear what this new role will be for, or the aims of the team, but as of last month Sony announced to be bringing classic games to the PS5 through the PS Plus Premium subscription, and as of when it launches for £13.49 per month, subscribers will gain access to 340 games from Playstation 1,2,3, and PSP consoles. However, these games will only be made playable via cloud streaming, so keep that in mind.
