Rumor: Team ICO Next-Gen Project In August GamePro
During the last generation, games like ICO and Shadow of the Colossus garnered widespread critical acclaim and many, many fans. Those same fans have been patiently waiting for news of Team ICO's next-gen project (there is one, although we have no information on it yet), and perhaps the August 2008 issue of GamePro will open our eyes.
This is one of those rumors that appear to be quite thin on the surface, but as we so desperately want some news, we're inclined to tell ya about it: according to SCRAWL, they say a "truly...colossal secret" would be part of the issue. Obviously, this makes everyone think they're hinting at a project that relates to the fantastic SotC; perhaps a sequel of some kind. Of course, Resistance 2 will be the centerpiece for the August GamePro (they call it the "biggest game of 2008"), but the interesting news comes from that mysterious quote. If you ask around and take a quick impromptu poll, attempting to find out how badly most gamers want another SotC, you might be surprised at the results... That particular title is such a huge cult classic these days, and the fans are tired of waiting for more from Team ICO!
But then again, we suggest giving them plenty of time to produce another gem for this generation; these developers are well known for their originality and innovation. No need to infringe on that by rushing 'em, but maybe the August GamePro will give up the goods.
