genDESIGN, the annoyingly capitalised studio formerly known as Team ICO, has once again teased its next title. You may remember that The Last Guardian maker hinted at a new project earlier in the year with an image that appeared to show a Yorda-esque lady and an ogre. Now it’s back with an alternative take on the same scene, as the white dressed woman stands atop a staircase with some kind of beast resting at the bottom.

Our money’s still on some kind of King Kong-style story, but there’s really not a whole lot to go on at this stage. Whether the developer’s continuing its collaboration with Japan Studio remains unknown; Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has expressed interest in working with director Fumito Ueda again, but there’s no guarantee that will happen.

Hopefully we'll learn a little more about the project over the course of the coming year.
