UK studio Splash Damage has teased Project Astrid, which purports to be a AAA open-world survival game being developed in partnership with streamers/content creators Mike "shroud" Grzesiek and Chris "Sacriel" Ball. Both have been involved since the project's inception.

Little else is known about Project Astrid. It's currently in preproduction, so we won't expect to see gameplay anytime soon. Lance Winter, creative director on Project Astrid, said of his collaborators, "Sacriel and shroud are core members of our development team. They bring with them a unique and fresh perspective. Not only that, but they’re providing us brand new insights into what fans and creators actually want from their gaming experiences. No one knows this genre better than they do.”

Splash Damage has been making multiplayer shooters for more than two decades, with titles like Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars under its belt, so a partnership with the likes of shroud and Sacriel could indeed bear interesting fruit.
