The team behind Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, and The Last Guardian has begun work on a new project.
GenDESIGN may not be as memorable a name as Team Ico, but it’s the same studio that created The Last Guardian and consists of many former Team Ico members, including director Fumito Ueda. The studio put out a call both on Twitter and on the team’s website.

Both the Tweet and website are in Japanese, but when translated, they show that the team is looking for a wide variety of positions, with spots open for background modelers, effect artists, technical artists, animator, programmers, procedural animation programmers, game designers, and project managers.
At the moment, genDESIGN hasn’t revealed what the game will be about, and the website doesn’t contain any clues. Given how long fans had to wait between the reveal of The Last Guardian and the game’s final release, the studio may be a little more cautious about announcing projects early.
We’ll keep an eye out for any further updates on this project.
