Viktor Antonov has previously worked on several popular titles, including but not limited to Quake II, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Fallout 4, and Doom. Viktor founded Eschatology Entertainment alongside Fuad Kuliev, Dmytro Kostiukevych, and Boris Nikolaev in 2022. Some of the founders have previously worked at Wargaming, a video game company based in Cyprus.

Eschatology Entertainment’s currently under-development AAA project is set to introduce a new touch to the Souls-like genre. While there is already an abundance of Souls-like games, there really aren’t that many games that feature FPS gameplay belonging to the genre. This under-development FPS title is set to be narrative driven and will likely inspire many games to come.

We already have Remnants: From The Ashes, which came out in August 2019, that combines the elements of a third-person shooter and the souls-like genre. Remnants 2, a sequel to Remnants: From The Ashes, is set to launch soon, on July 25, 2023. Remnants 2 is developed by Gunfire Games and will be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.
