PlayStation Is Getting Serious About Its Retro Library
“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!” Garrett Fredley wrote Monday. “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.”
Fredley’s earlier experience includes a stint at EA, where he led the preservation of the FIFA franchise. For those interested to know more about his work, he also pointed to a presentation he gave at Game Developers Conference 2019.
PlayStation didn’t respond to a request for comment about the game preservation team.
