After having been created and working on a project in secret, Brass Lion Entertainment finally revealed themselves to the world today. Additionally, they've announced their first project.
Brass Lion is a new studio made up of members who worked on major games such as Fallout 3, Sleeping Dogs, Mass Effect 3, and more. Their goal is to make not just games, but universes that can spawn TV shows, comics, movies, and more. Additionally, they want these universes to focus on characters that they feel aren't usually represented in games, specifically mentioning "original fictional universes that center on Black and Brown characters, cultures, and stories."
In addition to this, their first project is called Corner Wolves. Taking place in Harlem in the mid-90s, you'll play as a woman named Jacinte who is trying to figure out who killed her father. Brass Lion has already promised that Corner Wolves will have more than just a video game, but what other projects they have planned for the universe hasn't been mentioned yet. The game will be written by Evan Narcisse, a journalist who also wrote the Rise of the Black Panther series of comics and worked on the show Gen:Lock for Rooster Teeth. Music producer Just Blaze, who worked on albums for artists like Jay-Z, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Beyoncé, will be handling the music.
Brass Lion is promising that they have more planned after Corner Wolves, so it should be interesting to keep an eye on the studio and see what happens next. In the meantime, we'll just have to keep an eye for more information on the game.
There's currently no word on when Corner Wolves will be launching or for what platforms.
