The next game by PlayStation studio Housemarque will be a new IP

    In a recent interview with VentureBeat, Housemarque CEO Ilari Kuittinen confirmed that the Returnal studio’s next game will be a new IP. The game is still in the conceptual phase so it’s still a while away. VentureBeat asked about potential interest in Housemarque creating live service games and how a studio could retain their identity when the industry changes around them. Here’s what Kuittinen had to say:

    “Well, the jury is still out there. We’re one of the very last dinosaurs making arcade games. Nex Machina, a few years ago, was very much a shoot-’em-up game in the style of the coin-ops from the ‘80s. That’s sort of a clue. But it’s interesting. We’ve been thinking about that. We had our stint working on multiplayer games, because a few years back it seemed like you needed to have some kind of multiplayer experience. We tried that, and we really didn’t do it as well. But it’s early days with us starting a new game, a new IP, concepting it out. We’ll see what comes with that.”

    With PlayStation’s resources, there’s no doubt that Housemarque’s next game will be one fans are clamoring for. In the meantime, stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest gaming news and updates!
