New Painkiller Revealed

A brief aside during the Summer Game Fest revealed plans for a new installment in the Painkiller series. This was during a brief appearance by Saber Interactive head of publishing Todd Hollenshead. The former id Software CEO did not provide any details or specifics other than to say Saber is working on a new first-person shooter in the Painkiller franchise. Meanwhile, Koch Media takes the wraps off of Prime Matter, a new label under which the new Painkiller will be published.

Yeah, it's been too long for a good sequel for the original Painkiller ... I hope they can pull it off

I knew this franchise wouldn't stay sedated long.

Wasn't there just recently an announcement that the original Painkiller devs were working on a new IP?

edit: I guess it was this in 2020 that I was thinking of:

and the unannounced game ended up being this new Painkiller game.

But there's also this from earlier in 2020:

We'll see.. The reason everything after the first expansion sucked is because it was 'Painkiller' in name only. That's still the case, but I guess it's better to be in the hands of a legit studio now rather than literal random amateurs. Saber is another one of those dev houses that does a ton of outsourcing work on ports and such, so as a reminder, their most recent originals include: the upcoming Evil Dead: The Game, WWE 2K Battlegrounds, SnowRunner, World War Z, and NBA Playgrounds. In other words, I'm not holding my breath for a great FPS, no matter how many former id execs they hire (Tim Willits is also there).

Holy Shi... one of my all time favorite games. Hope it is true to the original and not like the garbage "remakes" and "improved" version BS.

Oh man -

The original version of PK was and still is amazing. The expac was ok too - loved the Theme Park and Orphanage levels.
All the other garbage that came out afterwards rehashing the original release is awful.

Proper new entry into the franchise, I am interested and perhaps a bit excited.
