Creative Assembly behind the Total War series and the popular Alien Isolation title have announced that they are working on a new IP.
In 2022 and early 2023, gamers will be witnessing the launch of several new sci-fi FPS titles. From the DOOM-inspired Warhammer 40K: Boltgun to the unique High On Life of the developers who created Rick and Morty, gamers want to travel to distant worlds and see the strange alien species that have come to be. There are many games to enjoy. Now another sci-fi game has been revealed from Creative Assembly, the studio known to the community through the Total War and Alien Isolation series.
Alien Isolation is a game that has been well received by gamers, bringing the Alien franchise back to its horror roots by trapping players inside a space station filled with dangerous Xenomorph creatures. The game is so good that it has become the standard of comparison for other sci-fi horror games. After producing a successful sci-fi horror game, Creative Assembly studio director Gareth Edmondson and creative director Alistair Hope have announced that the company is working on a new FPS title.
So far, this new game has no name and no release date, but Hope and Edmondson have some sharing with gamers about the upcoming game. Hope says the project will boast “attention to detail and authenticity” and is filled with understanding of “source material”. Creative Assembly product manager Rob Bartholomew added that “it’s a world we’re creating”.
Combining Hope’s claim of “source material” and Bartholomew’s words about a new world, some gamers believe that instead of this being an entirely new universe, Creative Assembly is creating a new setting for the world. an existing product. Considering Creative Assembly’s experience with Warhammer after creating Total War Warhammer, it’s possible that the developer could create a new game in the Warhammer 40k setting.
In addition, this new IP can also be from many other brands. In 2021, Creative Assembly introduced the new game with a SEGA-related visual like Jet Set Radio and Sonic the Hedgehog. SEGA has previously announced that it is reviving some of its old franchises like Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio, so Creative Assembly’s work could be part of that. This game is unlike anything Creative Assembly has done before, and while Alien Isolation is also first-person, there’s a huge difference between a stealthy, third-person game. and an FPS game.
