Elite Dangerous and Planet Coaster developer Frontier is making ready to start out engaged on…one thing. Earlier as we speak, the developer introduced that it had acquired the rights to what it says is “a major global IP license.” Sadly although, that’s all the knowledge the developer was keen to give us.
The announcement got here through the London Stock Exchange, and confirmed that Frontier would positively being growing and publishing a game primarily based on the IP, which does at the very least affirm that it’s a brand-new game, somewhat than an add-on to considered one of their beforehand present titles. Frontier says that it expects a two-year growth cycle, and that energetic growth is anticipated to start out a while later this 12 months, so you need to see no matter this thriller game is someday in 2021.
Beyond that, the one different particulars now we have are that Frontier is planning subsequent DLC, and that the discharge will likely be throughout PC and console. Unsurprisingly, chief government David Braben says that the corporate will “continue to love, support, and enhance our existing game franchises.”
Frontier is already working on another IP, but it surely says that that one is first-party (and should or will not be a Planet Coaster spin-off), whereas this new game will likely be primarily based on a pre-existing franchise.
What that may be is actually anyone’s guess. It’s attainable it’s one other Jurassic World game, however given Frontier made the primary one, I’d have imagined they’d have been in a position to come straight out and inform us a couple of new one. I may need guessed one thing space-y have been it not for Elite, however for now I suppose we’ll simply have to attend for extra info. Generally, we like a little bit extra saying in our bulletins, however sadly Frontier declined to remark additional.
