The new Microsoft studio, which has still not managed to release Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2, announces a brand new project, a new AAA license in a style that has never been seen before for Blizzard.
Blizzard Entertainment, creator of the Warcraft franchise, and future new Microsoft studio following the acquisition of the ABK group, had promised to talk a little about video games this week. A way to prove that the company will start to clean up after a year of controversies, court cases and postponements.
But where everyone was finally waiting for news of Overwatch 2 or Diablo 4, postponed indefinitely, Blizzard surprised on Tuesday evening by announcing a “survival in a whole new universe”. The company takes the opportunity to open new positions in all areas.
Not much more to know for now: the game will be available on PC and consoles, and according to the description of some posts, we can expect large forest environments more than urban ones and “creatures”, which seems to put it in line with a Valheim rather than a Rust.
A first image unveiled, if it refers well to this new title, leaves little room for doubt as to the universe (of heroic-fantasy obviously) chosen.
