Stormdivers PS4 PlayStation 4

Oh, Housemarque. This is the studio that made a name for itself by creating arcade classics like Super Stardust HD, Resogun, and Nex Machina before switching gears entirely. It's currently working on the multiplayer shooter Stormdivers, but in a new article from the developer's CEO, it sounds like it has bigger plans.

"Instead of shutting down we have made the jump to AAA development and are working on a new, unannounced IP," the article reads. "This is the biggest and most ambitious game that Housemarque has ever worked on."

Of course, it isn't made clear what this AAA title will be, but it's an encouraging sign that things are looking up for the Finnish studio. With its brilliant arcade games failing to sell, it's had to move into unknown territory, but some ambitious-sounding pitches to publishers has landed it a much bigger project than it's been able to before. Work on the game started last year.

Your guess is as good as ours what this game will look like. What do you think Housemarque has cooking? What do you want to see from the studio in the future? Declare your love for arcade in the comments below.
