Arrowhead Game Studios working on a AAA co-op shooter for next-gen platforms

Magicka crew back in the studio

Arrowhead Game Studios, the fine folk behind Magicka and cartoony shmup Helldivers, has announced that it is beginning work on a brand new, AAA, third-person shooter. The Stockholm-based studio is currently staffing up for the untitled next-gen release.

“We are incredibly excited to create a new, next-gen, co-op experience for our fans and community,” said Arrowhead Game Studios CEO Johan Pilestedt in a press release. “We are looking for talented developers to join us on this journey and are looking forward to sharing more details about the project at a later date.”

The new title will boast next-gen graphics (well, obviously), innovative co-op gameplay, and “agency for the community to alter the course of the game.” Arrowhead is also quick to note that the new title will feature the satirical and irreverent humor that is the studio’s trademark. We will, of course, keep you informed when more information is forthcoming.
