The development group includes the R&D group responsible for EyeToy, and various other research and development groups dedicated to the production of PlayStation games and development tools across all of SIE's gaming platforms. SIE London Studio operates as part of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios. The studio was formed in 2002 by the merger of Studio Camden and Team Soho.
The original development staff had little to no experience in the video game industry, with most of them being recent college graduates.
SIE London Studio developed a virtual reality (VR) rendering technology, called the LSSDK engine, which supports PlayStation 4 and PC. This engine was first used in PlayStation VR Worlds, which contained five virtual reality experiences: "The London Heist", "Into The Deep", "VR Luge", "Danger Ball" and "Scavenger's Odyssey". Their upcoming game Blood and Truth, which expands upon VR Worlds' The London Heist, is using an updated version of the same technology.
