Syphone Filter series
Bend Studio is a video game developer founded in 1994. Perhaps best known for developing the Syphon Filter video game series, Bend Studio is the developer behind the upcoming PlayStation Vita video game Uncharted: Golden Abyss.
Bend Studio was founded in 1994, as Blank, Berlyn and Co. The name of the company was soon changed to Eidetic. Under the Eidetic banner, the company developed three games: the almost universally-panned Bubsy 3D and the first two games of the Syphon Filter video game series.
In 2000, Eidetic became a subsidiary of Sony Computer Entertainment and was renamed Bend Studio. The company would continue its development of Syphon Filter series under this new name until 2007, and ultimately released five more games to the series.
In 2009, Bend developed an instalment in the Resistance series entitled Resistance: Retribution. Overseen by Naughty Dog, the company is currently developing Uncharted: Golden Abyss, an instalment in the Uncharted series for the PlayStation Vita platform.
