Frontier Developments Turns To Hollywood For Its Next Game

The developer of Elite Dangerous and Planet Coaster has licensed something from a Hollywood studio.

Frontier Developments announced today that it has licensed the rights to an unnamed project for an unnamed Hollywood studio. This license will form the studio's third major franchise, following the success of Elite Dangerous and Planet Coaster.

Following Planet Coaster, Frontier is moving on to a Hollywood franchise.

According to the studio, the license is from an "enduring movie franchise of global renown". It promises to offer further details later in 2017.

"The third franchise is an important next step in our growth. We have chosen to license this particular IP to work with as our third franchise, because we believe we can create something very special. It is creatively stimulating, already has a high worldwide profile, and is a perfect match for our expertise," said Frontier Developments CEO David Braben.

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