Square Enix and Take-Two Are Working With BULLETSTORM Team on 2 New Action-RPGs
People Can Fly has unveiled a glimpse into its plans for the next 4 years to attract potential investors, as the studio is preparing to make its stock market debut on the Warsaw Stock Exchange at the turn of the year.
Although People Can Fly — the renowned makers of Painkiller, Bulletstorm, and Gears of War: Judgment — remains focused on finishing Outriders, the company has officially begun production on two all-new titles.
The Polish developer is currently working on 3 big-budget video games: the aforementioned third-person shooter, Project Gemini (which will be published by Square Enix, the Japanese company that is also helping the studio bring Outriders to life), and Project Dagger. The last title will be released by Take-Two Interactive, the New York–based publisher that brought you Borderlands 3, Mafia: Definitive Edition and Max Payne 3.
Both Project Gemini and Project Dagger are action-RPGs that will store shelves by 2025. One of these games will be "groundbreaking" and led by People Can Fly's New York studio. The mysterious production is being helmed by Roland Lesterlin, who previously had a chance to work on Just Cause 3 and Lords of the Fallen 2.
People Can Fly is also hoping to start self-publishing their games and expand its already established studios in the US (New York City), Canada (Montreal), the UK (Newcastle), and Poland (Warsaw, Rzeszów, and Łódź).
As a friendly reminder, People Can Fly's unique answer to Tom Clancy's The Division is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC (via Steam & EGS) on February 2. The Mass Effect–inspired TPS will also arrive on Google Stadia at some point next year, and will support cross-play on all platforms.
