- Counterplay Games, the developer of Godfall, is making a new game for PC.
- This is in addition to the co-op action fantasy shooter based on a new IP that the studio is developing for next-gen.
According to the LinkedIn profile of Godfall’s Lead Designer, Counterplay Games is working on a brand-new project built for PC. The upcoming game hasn’t been announced yet by the studio, which is responsible for the first-ever PlayStation 5 exclusive. But, it has been in development for quite some time according to the profile of game designer Paul Boyle, who worked on the title from 2021-2022.
Not much info is available outside of that but we now know that Counterplay Games might be developing two titles. Back in December 2021, the studio posted job listings for a co-op action fantasy shooter based on a new IP. Hence, it was seemingly not a sequel to Godfall and would also not be a PlayStation exclusive but a next-gen title.
Only time will tell us more about these upcoming Counterplay Games titles, but we do hope they are better than Godfall. The 2020 action RPG wasn’t a big critical or commercial success. The RPG received mixed reviews from critics and fans didn’t really warm up to it due to its excessive focus on grind. Godfall was the first exclusive Sony announced for the PlayStation 5 back at the 2019 Game Awards.
Developed in Unreal Engine 4, the role-playing title got funding from Kowloon Nights, the group responsible for funding Fumito Ueda’s upcoming game. It came out simultaneously on PC and PS5 on November 12, 2020, from American company Gearbox Publishing. Eventually, the studio ported Godfall to PlayStation 4 in 2021 and finally to Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S In April 2022.
Prior to Godfall, Counterplay developed the card game Duelyst, which got a more positive reception. The studio recently released the source code of the game to the public, allowing fans to improve it. Hopefully, these upcoming projects reflect the developer’s first game and not Godfall.
