Quantum Break’s PR Head Talks Necessity to Move to New Games to Pay the Bills; Not Working on Mobile

The process of moving from a shipped game to the next is quite interesting, and often different depending on  the developer or on the publisher. Some immediately move on to full development or have projects already well in the works on which to move the team members that are done with the previous game, others downsize and move to several months or even years of pre-production, more take a stance more or less in the middle between the two.

After announcing today that two new games are in the works, Remedy Entertainment Head of PR Thomas Puha explained on Twitter how things work at the studio, that as an independent company working on AAA games, needs to keeps the ball rolling.

Bills certainly don’t pay themselves, especially when you don’t have a big publisher keeping you afloat. It’s perfectly understandable that part of the staff at Remedy was already pushing a new project with a new partner before Quantum Break was shipped.

Puha also provided further color, mentioning that the team isn’t working on mobile games or on Max Payne 4, while hints on the identity of the new partner for the new game aren’t to be found in recent visits to other studios.

It’ll be interesting to see what this new project already in the oven is, but for now we’ll have to wait and see.
