Splash Damage, developer of games like Gears Tactics, Dirty Bomb and Brink, have recently stated that they’re working on a brand new IP set in an “original sci-fi universe”. The team announced this IP in a community message only a few hours ago. The team is also hiring for various positions like UI Designers and Artists. The official statement from Splash Damage itself also says:
“We’re thrilled to announce that one of our current projects is a brand new game, set in an original sci-fi universe.
We’ve loved working with established IPs like Wolfenstein, Gears of War, and Halo over our 20-year history, but we’re eager to create another world of our own like Brink, Outcasters, and Dirty Bomb.”
The name of the title hasn’t yet been announced and I think its safe to assume the game itself isn’t going to be revealed anytime soon.
Splash Damage has acquired a decent reputation with gamers over the years, with much loved titles like Gears Tactics and Dirty Bomb as well as not so great titles like 2011’s Brink. It remains to be seen how their latest venture is going to bear fruit. Gears Tactics still remains a surprisingly great recreation of the third person shooter mayhem of Gears of War in the form of a turn-based XCOM-esque tactics game. While Dirty Bomb was beloved for its mixture of the fast paced gameplay and Team Fortress 2’s unique class system. The game has lost a lot of its players today but at its heyday it was considered by many to be one of the best Free To Play shooters around.
With such an interesting track record, its going to be very intriguing as to what Splash Damage brings next to the table, whether its going to be another medal on their trick record remains to be seen as of right now.
