Playdead’s next project is already looking very intriguing.
Playdead, the studio behind Inside and Limbo, is currently hard at work on its third game. The new game doesn’t have a name, or a release target, but the studio’s website does reveal a few tiny bits of interesting details.
For starters, it reveals that the game is a third-person adventure, which is a big change from the team’s earlier work with side-scrollers. The science fiction project takes place in “a remote corner of the universe,” according to Playdead’s description.
Unfortunately, the recruitment page doesn’t reveal much more besides. That said, the page lists 11 available positions, so the project is likely fairly early in development.
What they do show off, however, are a few early pieces of concept art. They show a character, seemingly an astronaut, exploring some bleak otherworldly environments that would only exist in a Playdead game.
We’ve included them in the gallery below, but fair to say it’s looking very exciting.
This Playdead game will be published by Epic Games, alongside the new project from Remedy, and GenDesign’s next game – all under the Epic Games Publishing label.
