Electronic Arts has announced it is teaming up with Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force for a new AAA title, which it describes as the ‘next great hunting game.’ The game will form part of the EA Originals label, and will be set against the backdrop of a fantasy feudal Japan.
Yosuke Hayashi, Koei Tecmo Games’ Executive Vice President, commented:
It’s an honor to be partnering with EA Originals and to have the support of a team with such an incredible track record of releasing groundbreaking new games. The EA team fully embraces our creative independence and have become invaluable partners offering both development and publishing support.
Adding the global resources of EA with our own will help us introduce a new kind of hunting game to a global audience of players and expand our reach into global markets. I’m really looking forward to the day that gamers from around the world can play this new game.
Jeff Gamon, EA Partners’ General Manager, added:
Building on the incredible success of EA Originals, which includes the recent releases of It Takes Two and Knockout City™, we’re thrilled to be partnering with the amazingly talented Omega Force team. They’ve elevated the hunting genre to the next level, merging their proven talent for combat gameplay with unexpected and innovative mechanics. We can’t wait to introduce their groundbreaking new adventure to the world later this month.
No further details were announced, although the project sounds like it’s still in the early stages of development.
