505 Games and Remedy have joined forces and signed a new publishing agreement for Remedy’s next game. This new game is currently codenamed “Project 7” (P7).
While there’s no real detail about what the game is about, it’s safe to say it’s something completely new. The publishing announcement included the following details.
“The new game, codenamed “Project 7” (P7) is a cinematic third-person action game set in a new Remedy-created universe. Featuring an intriguing story and a game structure offering a long-lasting experience, P7 contains the deepest game mechanics yet in a Remedy game. The game is built on Remedy’s proprietary Northlight technology.”
505 Games are stumping up €7.75 million in development funding for P7 and will be handling all publishing and marketing duties.
“We have a strong vision of what P7 should be. 505 Games brings into this partnership experience and competences that help us successfully make this vision become reality together, ” said Remedy’s CEO Tero Virtala. “Remedy is also investing in P7 and is deeply committed to creating a unique gaming experience that will keep the players engaged and playing for a long time to come. We are really excited to embark on this journey with 505 Games.”
