People Can Fly Are Working On a New Original AAA Action Adventure
People Can Fly might have a massive co-op shooter dropping later this year, but that doesn't mean they can't kick off work on their next project.
People Can Fly is awfully busy these days. The developers of Bulletstorm are deep into a major marketing push as they get ready to release their new co-op shooter Outriders later this year. The fun doesn’t stop there though. PCF announced today that they’re ramping up development on a new original property for next-gen consoles, streaming services, and PCs everywhere.
The new project will be developed by People Can Fly’s New York studio, which is led by David Grijns. PCF plans to grow the New York studio quite a bit over the next year, as they fill the gaps to build what sounds like an ambitious project. Of course, it won’t just be that one studio working on it. The New York studio will work with PCF’s studios in Warsaw, Rzeszow, and Newcastle. Plus, they’re planning to open a new startup studio in Montreal.
As of now, pretty much nothing is known about what People Can Fly’s next step will actually be. That’s pretty great on its own. One of the things I’ve noticed as Sony and Microsoft show off the games coming for next-gen is that we’re getting a lot of safe sequels. If People Can Fly deliver a brand-new IP that hits with their core audience, that’s excellent. Only time will tell if they can make it all work. That said, considering the team’s track record, I’m excited to see what they do next.
People Can Fly fans, fortunately, don’t have to wait long to check out what they’ve been working on. Outriders is set to launch later this year on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. From what I’ve seen and played, it seems like it’ll be a ton of fun.
