Project Athia Will Apparently Remain Exclusive to PS5 and PC for Two Years

A new teaser from Project Athia in PS5's new trailer says the game will remain PS5 console-exclusive for at least two years.

A new trailer for PS5 that shows off all the upcoming games to the console, revealed that Square Enix’s Project Athia will be exclusive to PS5 and PC for two years.

Project Athia was one of the many games that announced during the very first digital showcase of PS5 back in Summer this year. Despite providing a brief intro and some gameplay footage, we got to learn that Project Athia will target a release on PS5 and PC. Now, according to a new PS5 trailer, the game will remain a console exclusive on PS5 for 24 months, at least.

If you notice the bottom of the screen during the footage of Project Athia in the trailer above, you can easily spot the small line saying that the game won’t be released on any console other than PS5 for at least 24 months. This is pretty a big timed-exclusive deal between Square Enix and Sony, and it’s not the only one. The two Japanese giants also have exclusivity deals on the upcoming Final Fantasy XVI and Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2.

Project Athia will apparently be a story-driven open-world RPG set in a fantasy world where you will have your own unique abilities against other monsters and enemies. The game seemingly puts you in the role of Athia, a young woman who has agile movements and some ranged skills allowing her to defend herself in various ways.

Not much information has been provided about the game yet, but at least we know that it’s being developed by Luminous Productions, a team that had already worked on a part of Final Fantasy XV along with its main studio.

Project Athia doesn’t have any release date yet, but it might be one of Square Enix’s big surprises for 2021 or beyond.
