A report coming from DualShockers is hinting at the idea that the developer of Nier: Automata and Bayonetta are working on a brand new franchise. PlatinumGames is seeing great success with their most recent title and to capitalize on it, it appears their next game is going to be quite interesting.
According to the story, during a keynote at BitSummit in Kyoto, PlatinumGames producer Atsushi Inaba mentioned a “formless, shapeless IP” that he couldn’t go into details over at the conference, but that the IP would be lead by a new director. It would be the first new franchise the company would create in over four years, having created sequels and remastered versions of their previous franchises since 2013. It’ll be interesting to see if any details are leaked during E3, or if this is a project that simply too early to talk about as they haven’t got anything concrete to show off. We’ll keep our eyes peeled in June.
