Something next-gen is cooking over at Project Eternity and South Park developer Obsidian Entertainment, but CEO Feargus Urquhart "can't really talk about" what it is, including whether it's a new IP or not.
The studio boss confirmed they're "around 100" developers, with "around 15" of that working on Project Eternity. Urquhart couldn't really breakdown numbers for their "other projects" on the go.
One of those is at least South Park: The Stick of Truth, which Ubisoft bought the rights to publish from the THQ auction, although development should be wrapping up.
"Unfortunately, we can't really talk about what we are working on, but it is already looking great," Feargus Urquhart told . "As for the number of people at the studio, it's safe to say we are around 100. As for the split of people, we do have around 15 people working on Project Eternity and that will go up by a few in the few months."
"As for the other projects, it's a bit more complicated to explain exactly how many people we have on one project versus another." Recent snippets from LinkedIn have found mention of "unique next-generation game", "unannounced next-gen console title", as well as "role-playing" and "action" in close proximity.
Obsidian has made it no secret that they'd love to get their hands on the Star Wars license again, particularly if it means they can explore between Episode III and IV. Of course it could be an all-new IP that they'd like to explore, as so far only Alpha Protocol and Project Eternity are original creations. Maybe it's a new Dungeon Siege?
