Arrowhead Studios, the developers behind Helldivers, Magicka, Gauntlet, and The Showdown Effect, has announced that it is now working on a third person co-operative shooter for the new generation of consoles. Previously, the studio has released games on PC, PS4, Vita but never on an Xbox platform. Whether that will change for this yet unnamed title remains to be seen, but we can almost guarantee a PS5 release considering the studio’s track record.
We are incredibly excited to create a new, next-gen, co-op experience for our fans and community. We are looking for talented developers to join us on this journey and are looking forward to sharing more details about the project at a later date.” said Johan Pilestedt, Game Director and CEO.
There is no more detail really about this game aside from being third person, co-op, and ways to alter the story. It will also feature satirical humour. A screenshot from the new project has been released, showing what appears to a view from the ground in a desert landscape. You can check it out below.
We will just have to wait and see what other reveals the studio will give over the next couple of years.
