As noticed by a Resetera user, the listing on the UK-based studio’s website cites that the developers are currently brewing an “AAA narrative-driven horror-adventure game.

This title could be a wholly new IP or amidst Sony’s existing IPs like Siren. Everything else about this peculiar title is surrounded by mist. However, the game appears to be in a very primitive state, and we may not hear anything for a couple of years.

Moreover, Firesprite Studios is mingling with a few projects at a time. It’s been confirmed that the studio is co-developing Horizon Call of the Mountain in conjunction with Guerrilla. However, leaks have also firmly implied that Firesprite is in command of a Twisted Metal revival.
