According to what has emerged in the past few hours, Remedy has revealed some details related to the new projects under development, including the title fully funded by Epic Games, Vanguard.
According to the words of the well-known insider Nibel, the game in question could not only count on a rather substantial budget, but should also release on consoles and PC. So, despite the title being subsidized in full, Remedy will remain the owner of the IP.
The game (which is supposed to be a service-based multiplayer and distributed as free-to-play), would have already undergone a first test phase, obtaining quite promising results, therefore development should go live soon.
We report in detail the statements given by Nibel below:
Some details about the Epic x Remedy project
– fully funded by Epic
– coming to consoles and PC
– “significant marketing investment”
– Remedy owns the IP
As some of you might rememeber. one of the next projects by Remedy is Vanguard; some details from their webcast:
– service-based F2P multiplayer game
– Remedy’s world-building/narrative strengths will be part of it
– very early in development but first tests are promising
Just announced by Sam Lake: “The next big Remedy game will take place in the [Remedy Connected Universe]”
He also noted that the Alan Wake TV show is making progress and that there is “high-profile interest” for Control media content as well
Waiting to find out more details on the nature of Vanguard, and if the latter will really be set in the same universe as Alan Wake and Jesse Faden, we remind you that tonight the 2020 edition of The Game Awards will be held, a highly anticipated event created and directed by Geoff Keighley.
