EA, the publisher of FIFA and Mass Effect, has signed a publishing partnership with Koei Tecmo and Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force for the “next great hunting game”. The title will release under the EA Originals label, which has already helped ship critically acclaimed projects like It Takes Two, a Game of the Year winner in 2021.
The adventure will be a “truly AAA experience” set in a “fantasy feudal Japan” – a dream for our very own ShogunRok, then!
“The EA team fully embraces our creative independence and has become invaluable partners offering both development and publishing support,” a chuffed Koei Tecmo executive vice president Yosuke Hayashi said. “Adding the global resources of EA with our own will help us introduce a new kind of hunting game to a global audience of players and expand our reach into global markets. I’m really looking forward to the day that gamers from around the world can play this new game.”
EA bigwig Jeff Gamon added: “Building on the incredible success of EA Originals, which includes the recent releases of It Takes Two and Knockout City, we’re thrilled to be partnering with the amazingly talented Omega Force team. They’ve elevated the hunting genre to the next level, merging their proven talent for combat gameplay with unexpected and innovative mechanics. We can’t wait to introduce their ground-breaking new adventure to the world later this month.”
