People will fly.
People Can Fly, the Polish development studio behind titles such as Outriders, Bulletstorm, and Gears of War: Judgment have announced a new original IP that is targeting next-generation platforms.
Established in 2002, People Can Fly is an independent developer that has made popular games such as Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgment, and doesn't appear to be slowing down yet. They are announcing the development of a AAA original title that is planned for release on next-generation consoles, streaming platforms, and PC. The title is being led by People Can Fly's New York studio, and plans to hire dozens of new staff over the next year to accommodate their need of new talent.
"There is electricity in the air at People Can Fly," said Sebastian Wojciechowski, CEO at People Can Fly. "Last year we announced the opening of our New York studio and revealed Outriders for the first time. Today we have surpassed 250 staff and are excited to announce the next chapter in the development of our company. Our intention from the beginning has been to expand People Can Fly into a multi-project studio and continue to build a global presence for our brand. We are marking this unique moment with the presentation of PCF’s refreshed visual identity. With the launch of the next-generation consoles later this year, we are incredibly excited about the future of People Can Fly and the games industry as a whole.”
The new title is a "highly ambitious, groundbreaking action adventure title" that will apparently use People Can Fly's two decades of developmental expertise in a new direction. They will also be opening a new studio in Montreal so that they can assist with the new project.
