Square Enix – the publisher who most recently rebooted their reboot of a 20 year RPG classic – has announced that they will be partnering with People Can Fly for an unnamed ‘high-end original title’ for console and PC.
Whatever form this new project takes, it will not be featured during Square Enix’s 2017 E3 showcase and will not be at the show in any facet. Previously People Can Fly gained notoriety as a subsidiary of Epic Games where they worked on the Gears of War franchise including an original entry in the franchise, Gears of War Judgement, released in 2013. In addition to the Gears of War and Painkiller franchises, People Can Fly also partnered with Gearbox Software to deliver Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition earlier this year.
Lee Singleton, Head of Studios at Square Enix was quoted with the following in Squeenix’s press release announcing the partnership:
“We’re massively excited to be working with the talented team at PCF in Warsaw, a studio filled with people who really know their craft … We’re building a game we all want to play which will be the perfect addition to our portfolio.”
It will probably be a few years before we hear about what the Polish developer is working on in conjunction with Square Enix. Then again Square still has quite a few projects to release that they announced at the start of this console generation back in 2013 *cough*.
