Today, publisher and developer Square Enix announced a new external development partnership with Polish developer People Can Fly, where the two will work together “to develop a new high-end original title for console and PC.”
For those that don’t know: Square Enix is the publisher and developer of recent titles such as Final Fantasy XV, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Hitman, and NieR: Automata. Meanwhile, People Can Fly is perhaps best known for Bulletstorm and as the co-developer of Gears of War: Judgment.
Further details beyond “a new high-end original title for console and PC” have not been divulged; however, it is possible the developer is being brought into the fold to work on a Marvel-based game. As you may remember, back in January, Square Enix announced a multi-game deal with Marvel.
Lee Singleton, Head of Studio at Square Enix London Studios accompanies the announcement with the following statement:
“We’re massively excited to be working with the talented team at PCF in Warsaw, a studio filled with people who really know their craft. We’re building a game we all want to play which will be the perfect addition to our portfolio.”
Sebastian Wojciechowski, Studio Head at People Can Fly adds:
“It’s an exciting time. We’ve got a great and experienced team in place, and it’s incredible to be working with Square Enix, a world-class publisher who shares our passion and excitement for the project.”
People Can Fly is currently expanding its team and looking to hire in a variety of positions. You can read more or find out how to apply here.
Square Enix notes that the game via this partnership will not be at E3 2017.
