Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgment developer People Can Fly is working on a new AAA shooter in partnership with Square Enix.
The developer revealed the news during a blog post (via PC Gamer) about the opening on two new studios in the U.K. and Poland. 150 people are working on the game across all three studios, but sadly no other details were shared.
“Since People Can Fly became an independent studio again, our ambition has been to build a team of talented and experienced developers that can develop the best AAA games,” the blog post reads. “We decided in 2017 to open a new studio in Newcastle, the UK, to attract not only local talent, but also to attract the best developers within the UK. We want this team to grow to 20-30 developers within the next 12-18 months.
“When CI Games decided to restructure its operations, we immediately decided to open a new studio in Rzeszów to allow those great developers to keep on working together as a team, and to contribute to the game we’re working on. Our intention is to give both new studios, in Newcastle and in Rzeszów, the opportunity to work on features or part of the game independently from the Warsaw team – says Sebastian Wojciechowski, CEO, People Can Fly.”
The Newcastle, England studio is made up of former Ubisoft staff and veteran developers. While the Rzeszów, Poland studio staffs 30 developers that worked on the Sniper: Ghost Warrior series.
People Can Fly has previously worked on Fortnite, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, Gears of War 3, and Painkiller.
