Rockstar Games Co-Founder’s Studio Reveals New Projects
It’s been a huge week for Rockstar Games Co-Founder Dan Houser’s studio, which just announced three upcoming projects at this week’s Los Angeles-based conference. Houser’s studio is the first major studio outside of Rockstar to come out with such an announcement, offering up some exciting new projects that are sure to create waves in the gaming world.
The Three Projects
The first project is an open-world action game. According to Houser, the game will have a mission-based structure with heavy emphasis on customisation and exploration. He also hinted that the game was influenced by the “unparalleled success of [their] Grand Theft Auto 5”, suggesting that the game could be familiar in many ways.
The second project is a virtual reality title which is currently in development. It centres around the idea of “exploring a rich open world in a first-person perspective”, and will also feature “in-depth mission-based gameplay”. This title will be available for both VR headsets and PC.
Finally, Houser’s studio is developing a project called “Hell”, which is a horror game that harkens back to the classic survival horror games of the 1990’s. According to Houser it will feature “a fully dynamic world and a unique story with multiple endings”. This title will be available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with an expected release sometime in 2018.
The Future of Gaming
It’s clear that Houser’s studio is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of gaming. With these three titles they’re bringing a vast array of gameplay experiences to the table, all with an emphasis on customisation and exploration. Considering the success of Rockstar’s titles, and Houser’s experience in the industry, it’s safe to say that these projects will be a hit when they eventually launch.
These projects from Houser’s studio are an exciting development for gamers, and should be looked forward to in the upcoming year.
