With Dying Light 2 now on the market, most of developer Techland's staff will have likely moved on to new projects — and one of these projects is going to be an open world action RPG with a fantasy setting. Sounds tasty right off the bat, doesn't it?
Techland is now hiring for this newly announced game, which means that it's still very early. Still, an exciting prospect given the Polish studio's previous efforts, and Techland reveals that ex-CD Projekt Red (The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077) members are involved as well.
Chief amongst them is Karolina Stachyra, who was one of The Witcher series' lead writers. She's joined by Arkadiusz Borowik, another of Geralt's storytellers. Safe to say that this new project should be in good hands from a narrative standpoint.
"Our ambition is to introduce a brand new IP that is vastly different from what we have been doing for the past several years. We want to create a fully next-gen experience. A new fantasy epic set in a sprawling open world, fueled by the skills and experience we have gained as a team over the years, infused with new ideas, passion, and creativity," writes Techland CEO Paweł Marchewka.
Again, it's probably going to be years before we actually get to see this thing take shape, but this announcement has certainly caught our attention. How do you feel about Techland making a fantasy RPG? By steel or silver, prepare yourself in the comments section below.
