Well, we don’t know about it either, but here are some clues.
Remedy Entertainment is a strange company. They don’t develop a lot of games, and all of their games have an artistic expression unique in its own genre. Max Payne, Alan Wake, Quantum Break; all of these games tried something different from other action games. Even though these games have some negative reviews, you know that the “Remedy taste” is not something you can easily forget. And Sam Lake is a good person.
In recent news, Remed Entertainment signed a publishing agreement with 505 Games (publisher of Payday 2, Abzû, Sniper Elite 3, etc.). It is a €7.75 million deal, for the development funds of the next Remedy game: “Project 7”. It will be a “cinematic action game” –which is a genre Remedy has the mastery. Project 7 will not be a sequel, it will have its own original universe. And it will come to PS4, along with PC and Xbox One.
Here is a statement from Remedy CEO Tera Virtala, on the issue:
We have a strong vision of what P7 should be. 505 Games brings into this partnership experience and competences that help us successfully make this vision become reality together. Remedy is also investing in P7 and is deeply committed to creating an unique gaming experience that will keep the players engaged and playing for a long time to come. We are really excited to embark on this journey with 505 Games.
We don’t know when there will be an official announcement, this E3 maybe? Stay tuned!
BONUS: We mentioned that Sam Lake is a good man. We meant it. Here is he, slow-jamming the importance of music in Remedy games:
