Outspoken games developer David Jaffe has given a few hints as to the identity of his next project, which sounds an awful lot like a shooter.
“There is a gun in [one of the games]. And you hold it,” he told IGN.
“And all the things that I can sit here and passionately discuss and preach to you are absolutely things that I’m thinking about doing if it turns out the game we’re thinking about doing gets made next involves a gun and a person holding a gun.”
Still on the subject of shooters, Jaffe went on to say that the debut trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 renewed his faith in the genre.
“I love the genre, but I feel it has been allowed to go a little – well, actually, quite a lot – stale when it comes to moment to moment mechanics,” he said.
Jaffe co-founded Eat Sleep Play back in 2007 and released three titles with the firm: Calling All Cars (2007), Twisted Metal: Head-On Extra Twisted Edition (2008) and Twisted Metal (2012).
Following the completion of the Twisted Metal, the God of War creator announced his intention to leave the studio to and establish a new company closer to home. Rumors have been doing the rounds that Jaffe intends to pursue a casual-oriented route, though this apparently isn’t the case.
“I remain incredibly enthusiastic about the browser space in terms of its ease of access, the number of people who can experience the game,” he said.
“But it doesn’t mean that’s where we’re going to end up.”
