Game News Xbox & Bethesda Showcase: The new game from the creators of We Happy Few announced at the conference?
The summer conference period kicked off on Thursday evening with Sony’s State of Play, but it’s really this week that things pick up speed, culminating (for now) in Summer Game Fest and the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase conference.
Last night, Geoff Keighley tried to calm the ardor players indicating that its Summer Game Fest certainly had great announcements in store, but that we will have mostly new information on titles already announceds, like The Callisto Protocol or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Xbox: A now huge entity with many projects
For its part, Microsoft must strike hard, and seems to have the intention, carried by Xbox Series and Game Pass. In a few years, the Xbox division has grown enormously, buying studios with a vengeance before afford Zenimax and therefore Bethesda. If all goes well for the Redmond firm, Activision-Blizzard-King will become an Xbox entity next year, adding many cult licenses to the catalog.
But even without Activision-Blizzard, Xbox has many projects in the works. A new Forza is in development, the Fable reboot is expected, the recently postponed Starfield has yet to show its gameplay, and we await news from Avowed, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, State of Decay 3, Everwild , The Outer Worlds 2, Perfect Dark, Redfall or even Indiana Jones. We also wonder what studios such as Double Fine, Alpha Dog Games, Roundhouse Studios or Compulsion Games.
Compulsion Games: A new site for a new game?
It is moreover the latter of which we are going to speak, since a new clue suggests that an announcement will be made this Sunday at 7 p.m. during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase. Of course we stay in the conditional, but the studio has just completely redone its site Internet. Normally, we might miss it or just point it out, but a few days away from a conference such as the one looming, eyebrows are raised. We know that the studio, founded in 2009 and to which we owe Contrast then We Happy Few, is working on a new game codenamed Project Midnight.
According to the information gleaned here and there, it would be a third-person game set in a gothic heroic-fantasy world. After several years of work, the timing seems perfect for an announcement. Currently, nearly 80 people work in the studio, and we feel that the formalization of the “new and strange” adventures should not be long. To find out if this new site indeed announced the presentation of a new game, go to HelloSolar.info, MGG and LeStream from 5:30 p.m. this Sunday, June 12, 2022!
