Yager, the studio behind the controversial Spec Ops: The Line, has teased their next big project. Speaking with Edge, managing director Timo Ullmann, has stated that they don’t want to be the studio that only makes military shooters. The studio wants to move onto something new and different. Spec Ops: The Line was a great game, and it will be a shame if we don’t see a sequel for the game. Ullmann also pointed out that consumers want something new, and referred to games like Dishonored and Dragon’s Dogma.
“After five years of working on Spec Ops, maybe it’s time to do something different so you don’t get trapped in that box where we’re just making military shooters,” Ullmann said. “We still have to be commercial–we learned that the hard way–but by being independent we can live creatively and never be labelled or framed as being about a certain thing. We’ve never had more platforms and more business models, so it’s a good time for new IP,” Ullmann said. “After a seven-year console lifecycle, people are longing for something new–gamers and publishers, actually–and that suits us fine.”
The new game from Yager is planning on being announced in the coming months, with the most likely occurrence being at this year’s E3 conference.
