An unnamed first-person shooter is in development at Creative Assembly, reports
based on information from the latest issue of EDGE Magazine. The
team that created Alien Isolation
has reportedly been working on the
project for four years now. The post offers quotes from studio director Gareth
Edmondson and creative director Alistair Hope on the shooter, which has a sci-fi
setting, but uses an entirely new IP:
According to Hope, this new game
boasts a "drive for attention to detail and authenticity" and commits to
"understanding the source material." Hope isn't offering any other clues as to
what this source material could be as of now, though.
"It's our new IP, and it's a world that we're creating, and of course we're
wringing our hands over it and we really want to get that right," chief product
officer Rob Bartholomew adds. "We want to understand what authenticity in a blue
ocean or an open sky looks like, when you've got a blank page in front of you,"
