Creative Assembly’s Been Working On A New Game For Four Years – They Want It To Be Huge!

It’s said to be unlike anything Creative Assembly has ever done before – so there’s a good chance it won’t be a sequel to Alien: Isolation, which many of us are waiting for.



Creative Assembly, the developers of the Total War games and Alien: Isolation, are working on an unannounced, brand new world sci-fi FPS that they hope to build as a brand new IP.

In the latest issue of Edge magazine, Creative Assembly’s studio director Gareth Edmondson and creative director Alistair Hope reveal some details about their new project.

The team behind the excellent Alien: Isolation has been working on an “as-yet-unnamed sci-fi FPS” since 2018.

Hope says the new game will boast a “drive for attention to detail and authenticity” and a commitment to “understanding the source material.” However, Hope does not yet give any further clues as to what that source material might be.

“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,” added Rob Bartholomew, product lead. “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,” Bartholomew continues.

This new venture certainly sounds unlike anything Creative Assembly has put its name to so far, as the Edge feature rightly points out.

You could be forgiven for associating the developer with the Total War series, or real-time strategy games in general, rather than first-person shooter sci-fi. Whatever this new project is, it’s worth keeping an eye on, given that it comes from the team behind Alien: Isolation.
