Spanish developer of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow MercurySteam is teaming up with former head of Konami Dave Cox on a new, unannounced project. Their teaser website, released yesterday, hints at what’s to come. Dave Cox commented:
“When I was approached by MercurySteam to get involved in their new project, I jumped at the chance. It’s been my great fortune and pleasure to work with this talented studio over many years.”
MercurySteam’s studio head Enric Alvarez added:
“Making games is a real passion for us and we enjoy tackling huge challenges. We’ve worked with Dave over many years and his passion and enthusiasm coupled with years of experience will give us a strong foundation for what will be our most ambitious undertaking as an independent studio.”
Featuring a small, sci-fi-esque command post, you can click on one of the screens displaying “Mission Status” to discover hints about the project. There is an “arrival” counter, ticking down the days, minutes and seconds until the game is announced, but what exactly is it? We’ll have to find out on April 15th.
The company first teased this project on their website in July of 2015. A brief text read, “Exploring new worlds, fighting strange creatures, discovering new heroes. Expect news soon.”
