Gary revealed the news on Twitter yesterday after the game was unveiled at the PS5 reveal event. He stated the following:
“Really proud to reveal that I led a crack team of A-list writers from the worlds of film, tv, games, and fantasy literature who helped create this immense new universe…”
The most interesting thing here is that he refers to the writing as building an “immense new universe” which suggests that this project is a big undertaking for Square Enix and Luminous Productions. Gary Whitta has also lent his talents to other games including Telltale’s The Walking Dead and the original Prey.
Really proud to reveal that I led a crack team of A-list writers from the worlds of film, tv, games, and fantasy literature who helped create this immense new universe for @SquareEnix. Can't wait for you to see and learn more. Stay tuned. #ProjectAthia https://t.co/tR1ObQEjGE
