People Can Fly of Bulletstorm and Gears of War fame have two new studios and a Triple-A shooter in the works with Square Enix.
Square Enix announced a partnership with People Can Fly last year, and said the two were working on a new game. Now we know that the type of game the two companies are making is a new Triple-A shooter. Previously People Can Fly released a remastered version of its cult favorite shooter Bulletstorm in 2017, and co-developed Fortnite with Epic Games. Before that People Can Fly developed Gears of War: Judgement as Epic Poland.
People Can Fly, independent once more after being bought by Epic Games in 2013 and turned into Epic Poland, announced a new studio in Newcastle, UK and Rzeszow, Poland. Both cities are strong video game and tech hubs in their local regions and the new studios are filled with veteran talent from studios like Ubisoft.
While we haven't heard or seen this new shooter, we will interested in checking it out when officially unveiled. A Square Enix Triple-A shooter is pretty unique, and if there's anything People Can Fly knows how to do exceedingly well, it's shooters.
Right now, Square Enix is gearing up a Marvel's Avengers game from Crystal Dynamics and Shadow of the Tomb Raider from Eidos. You can read our impressions about the game from Tomb Raider's unveiling event here.
