The “81 tasks” left are very possibly to the announcement of a new game, and today today they threw some more fuel to the fire mentioning:
Cannot wait to show off some new Ninja work. It’s been too long.
Interestingly, they specified that whatever they are teasing isn’t related to DMC (while to a fan asking for a sequel they replied “maybe one day,” so the possibility isn’t completely out of the question for the future), and they also clarified that it’s not related to Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and it’s not a mobile title.
They finally mentioned that we’ll find out “soon” what the new game is.< The most probable date for the announcement is August 12th at GDC Europe, where Co-Founder Tameem Antoniades will hold a panel titled “The Independent AAA Proposition,” promising footage of an undisclosed nex-gen game.
Considering the theme of the conference, it’s most possible that the new game will be part of a completely new IP, since it’s strongly hinted that it’ll be an independent production, without the support of a publisher.
Ninja Theory won’t have a booth at Gamescom according to the schedule of the event, but this doesn’t mean that they won’t be there at all. Often developers working on independent projects appear as guest at other companies’ booths.
