Creative Assembly is primarily known for the historical strategy franchise Total War, but two and a half years ago, a first-person shooter was mentioned in its vacancies. In early 2019, the developer confirmed the existence of the project and even showed it to filmmaker Neil Blomkamp. And so, in a fresh interview with GamesIndustry, we are talking about this game again.
Almost two years of silence led to all kinds of rumors about problems with the development of the new Creative Assembly project. But in an interview, SEGA Europe CEO Tim Heaton confirmed that the game is still in development: “Each of our studios has its own franchise, and all of them, in general, matured. So now we are trying to look at new intellectual property. Creative Assembly is preparing a new first-person shooter, and she is gathering teams around new IPs. Our in-house studios adhere to this two-pronged strategy: do more with what we have and think about new intellectual property. “…
It is still unknown what exactly the shooter from the creators of Total War is. It is noteworthy that earlier Creative Assembly had already released a game in a different genre – the horror movie Alien: Isolation became it. But the project being prepared should be based on a completely new intellectual property, it is not a continuation or a spiritual successor of “Alien”. Perhaps the announcement of the game will take place already this year at the award ceremony of The Game Awards, which will be held on December 10.
