Fumito Ueda, the director of Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, and The Last Guardian, revealed that he is working on a new game of a similar scale to his previous legendary games.
A Japanese magazine Famitsu conducted an interview with Ueda who gave some details on his new studio genDesign and plans for its future. “We’re in a stage of various trials. This stage we’re in, where we’re actually making our ideas to test if they’re interesting or not,” the game dev guru told Famitsu (translated by Gematsu). “What we’re making now doesn’t feel like an indie game. We’re ultimately aiming for something on the scale of Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, and The Last Guardian.”
Ueda’s latest game, The Last Guardian, was announced back in 2008 for the PlayStation 3. The game was released 8 years later on PS4, in 2016. The game designer then left Sony and Team ICO to build his new studio, genDesign.
Game Informer has also found an image on genDesign’s website which might be a small teaser for the project. Here it is:
It seems like we’ll have to wait for a while to learn more about the new project. Stay tuned for news!
