We’ve known – and written – about how People Can Fly, a Polish developer team, is making a game for Square Enix. It was officially revealed during the Japanese company’s E3 program!
„Outriders is the game that we have been wanting to make for years. We’re very happy to be working with Square Enix on this project, it’s a big undertaking for us and the team has grown considerably to work on the Outriders project. We now have over 200 developers at four international studios working on this project to make it our most ambitious shooter to date. We’re very excited to finally unveil Outriders to the world, and we can’t wait to show you more of the game,” said People Can Fly studio head Sebastian Wojciechowski in a press release.
„People Can Fly is the perfect partner for us to create a game like Outriders. They have a great history of creating high-quality shooters, plus an unmatched level of experience and expertise in the Unreal game engine, unrivalled in the gaming industry,” Square Enix External Studios co-head Lee Singleton added. „Outriders is a very exciting project for us at Square Enix External Studios. We’re focusing on giving players a true AAA co-op shooter with a deep feature set and strong narrative. The team at People Can Fly really know how to make gunplay feel tight and powerful and we can’t wait to show you more later this winter,” Jon Brooke, Singleton’s partner said.
Outriders is going to be a „dark, modern shooter” according to People Can Fly – they previously worked on Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgment. It is a cooperative title, in which you can play together with up to two of your friends. The game features genetically engineered species, with ties to the Marvel universe (!?), although it wasn’t mentioned during the event regarding the game.
Outriders is out in the summer of 2020, so in a year or so, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Time to go to planet Enoch!
