Θυμάστε το πρώτο μέτριο action RPG Lords of the Fallen; Οι περισσότεροι ίσως το παίξατε από το PS Plus και όπως ανακοίνωσε η CI Games το sequel βρίσκεται ήδη υπό ανάπτυξη. Αυτή τη φορά έχει αναλάβει το studio Defiant που εδρεύει στη Νέα Υόρκη και εργάζονται αρκετοί βετεράνοι προγραμματιστές με εμπειρία σε ΑΑΑ τίτλους. Δημιουργός είναι ο David Grijns που ήταν το κεφάλι στην Avalanche και game director του Just Cause 3. O CEO της CI Games μιλάει με πολύ θερμά λόγια για την εν λόγω συνεργασία και υπόσχονται ένα δυνατό Lords of the Fallen 2… Λογικά βρίσκεται σε πρώιμα στάδια ανάπτυξης και δεν αναφέρθηκε περίπου πότε θα πρέπει να το αναμένουμε.

“We talked to a number of globally respected studios that had shown a strong interest in making the next Lords of the Fallen, and received several solid pitches. We finally decided to move forward with Defiant because we were impressed with their game concept, production expertise, and the pedigree of their developers. Defiant is made up of some the industry’s most talented creators, and we are thrilled to have them create the sequel to Lords of the Fallen. We look forward to bringing their next big game to the global market on consoles and PC.
“Signing the next Lords of the Fallen with Defiant is a very important step for CI Games as a publisher. We look forward to continue teaming up with third-party developers to help bring their projects to global audiences, and are invested in building long term relationships. For the past several months we have been in discussions with many talented studios from around the world, and will soon have more to share about the outcomes of those discussions. This marks the beginning for CI Games in terms of the games portfolio we have been building for the coming years.”
David Grijns, Founder and Managing Director of Defiant Studios

We are happy that we can commit our studio to developing a great game in a well-established franchise. Our team has been excited about the chance to make the next Lords of the Fallen from the moment we started to work on our pitch for CI.
