Way back last January we learned that Tantalus Media were hiring for a “new AAA next-gen title“ destined for Wii U.
This was soon clarified by director of developer Joss Ellis, who teased: “It is a ‘port’ but more of a complete rework for the Wii U: a bit like the work we did on Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut. I can’t say what the title is but it is very exciting and is for an absolute top notch publisher. This game will be credited Tantalus… it’s not an MA / 18 or ‘hard core’ game which Mass Effect 3 and Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut are.”
It’s fallen silent since then, but step in Tantalus Media CEO Tom Crago to reignite our intrigue. Making an appearance on the Fragments of Silicon podcast where he discussed THQ’s fall, the demise of licensed games, and what the future holds.
“We’re [still] doing that”, Crago assured. “It hasn’t been announced, but it will be soon. And can I just further add to the mystique and say that it’s big. It’s the biggest thing we’ve ever done. And it’ll come out this year, and I hope it won’t disappoint.”
