Codemasters Teases New IP Shooter From Black Devs
You might remember Black from last generation; it was a fairly intense, atmospheric shooter that created a healthy following of fans. Well, maybe we're looking at a follow-up.
According to CVG, Codemasters has confirmed that their new IP shooter comes from the same mind that brought us Criterion's Black. The Codemasters Guildford Studio has teamed up with Stuart Black to begin working on the game; Black was the senior designer for the 2005 title that received solid scores from critics. In addition to his help, they'll also receive the veteran assistance of Tom Gillo, former Game Director at Sony Computer Entertainment London Studio, and Andrew Wilson, Senior Producer at Blackrock. The total number of employees working on this ambitious new IP is over 80 and they'll be working with Codemasters' well-received EGO engine. Said Codemasters VP Gavin Cheshire:
"Codemasters' Guildford Studio is key to our overall development strategy and this year has opened further positions across its design, programming and art teams. With Stuart Black directing the vision for our new IP in production, deployment of EGO and key development figures heading up a highly skilled team, our Guildford facility offers great potential for development talent based in the South East who want to join a growing studio and work on original titles."
Well, it's just another game that now sits on our radar. We're going to have to search for more info on this currently unannounced title, which is bound to get a whole lot of attention once its unveiled.
