"We're incredibly excited about this project. Learning games like this will, we hope, give teachers an extra tool in the classroom," said David Amor, creative director of Relentless.
"Using the buzzers and the quiz format means the game is instantly accessible - and works on the basis that kids learn more when they're having fun."
A preliminary version of Buzz: The Schools Quiz is being shown at BETT, the educational technology show running this week in London, with school trials due to take place before the title goes into full production.
The game will also introduce Teacher Features, allowing teachers to create a quiz around one particular subject, or set parameters for modes such as team play and game progression.
"Buzz has proven itself a hugely successful family home entertainment franchise for over 750,000 UK PlayStation owners," commented Ray Maguire, MD of Sony UK.
"Taking this proven format into the educational sector with brand new curriculum-relevant content created by teachers seems a potent new addition to the teacher's portfolio," he added
