Deck13 Moving On To Another New IP Following The Surge 2

Deck13 The Surge 2

Deck13, the development team behind Lords of the Fallen, has plans to work on a new IP once its current work on The Surge 2 is complete.

The revelation comes from Focus Home Interactive’s annual What’s Next Le Focus event in Paris. However, no details about the project have yet been made public.

Nevertheless, Italian outlet multiplayer.it claims that a poster at the showcase teases a first look at what could be key art. The image is confusing, possibly representing a creature blending fantasy and sci-fi aesthetics, with bestial teeth embedded in a mechanical skull being the only clearly identifiable artefacts.

While the image could be a hint towards The Surge 2, its appearance alongside a range of other currently unannounced titles—including DONTNOD’s new project—raises the likelihood of it being the new IP.

Meanwhile, The Surge 2 is reportedly set to arrive within a few months, though neither Deck13 nor Focus Home has yet locked a date down. Unlike its predecessor, this sequel takes place in a city, with verticality reportedly being one of the key tenets of the level design.

The Surge 2 is expected to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

OnlySP’s Dylan Warman reviewed The Surge on its release back in 2017, scoring it as a Credit while praising the atmosphere and combat in particular.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
