Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz
, Bethesda’s European managing direct Sean Brennan says that the publisher has some big things in store for E3. Namely, Brennan says that the first-person shooter title they’re set to reveal at E3 -- the fruits of a collaboration with developer Splash Damage
-- will be a “genre-breaker.” Brennan goes on to call the title “a real killer app.”
Splash Damage is an award winning UK-studio best known for its work on multiplayer content for id Software titles like Return to Castle Wolfenstein
and Doom 3
. Most Recently, the developer released Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
to decent reviews on the PC; the title was later ported by to consoles by other studios with less-than-stellar results.
Not much is known about the Splash Damage title, but its expected to be a cross platform title, so just about everyone can partake in the breaking of a genre. Hope you’re prepared.
