Earlier this year Housemarque announced it had put all other projects on hold to focus on an unannounced new game, said to be its most significant undertaking to date.
A team of 80 people is developing Housemarque’s upcoming title, it said, which has been in the works for almost three years.
The veteran developer behind Resogun and Super Stardust turns 25 this summer and in a blog post celebrating the upcoming anniversary, CEO Ilari Kuittinen said it would be a milestone year for the company.
“So now we are focused on delivering our most ambitious and biggest game to date, putting every other project on hold, including the development of Stormdivers,” Kuittinen said.
“It is great that the whole company can come together to deliver this game, which will define the next evolution of Housemarque.”
“We are eagerly awaiting the day we can announce it,” Kuittinen said of the mystery game. “At the same time, it is always nerve-wracking to anticipate what your reaction will be when we do finally complete development and the game is out for everyone to enjoy.
“We’ve never delivered anything at this scale before. The time is drawing ever closer when our publishing partner will reveal what we are working on, with the launch coming after that. This year will be full of exciting surprises, and we can’t wait to experience them with all of you!“
