Developers Behind Bulletstorm and Vanishing of Ethan Carter Reveal Witchfire [Edited]

Adrian Chmielarz and company are showing off their newest project.

Update: An earlier version of this article stated that The Astronauts and People Can Fly were working together on Witchfire. That's incorrect and this is wholly a project being developed by The Astronauts.

At the Game Awards this evening, a new title was revealed from The Astronauts, the creators of the Vanishing of Ethan Carter. The dark fantasy shooter is called Witchfire.

The team at The Astronauts was founded by former People Can Fly founder and creative director Adrian Chmielarz, artist Andrzej Poznanski, and animator Michal Kosieradzki. Witchfire is the team returning to those hardcore shooter roots, having developed Bulletstorm and Painkiller in the past.

Yeah, that's pretty much all we know. You can shoot things and given that the Astronauts is on it, people will probably be sad.

If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
