Deep 6 – Cancelled 4A Games Project, First Footage Released

Published

 on

Footage from the former THQ published and 4A Games developed game by the name of Deep Six, cancelled after THQ was dissolved in 2012, has surfaced.

4A Games, the team behind the Metro first-person survival shooter series, was in charge of the Deep Six project. It was meant to be a shooter with a creative concept. In 2013, the former executive vice president of THQ, Danny Bilson, stated the following about Deep Six:

We were only working on the creative, we hadn’t started yet. It was really fresh and it has a really great concept. I think 4A was gonna do it, the team that did Metro,” Bilson said. “It was really awesome – we had lost the war of the worlds to a water-based alien planet and they’d flooded the earth so everything was underwater.

Instead of focusing on Deep Six, 4A Games went on to develop Metro: Last Light, and they were meant to go on to develop the cancelled game afterward. Danny Bilson described the game as the following:

The player started in a work camp, because they’d imprisoned all of the humans on the ocean floor in these work camps. The player finds out that they’re exterminating humans and you have to escape – and the whole game was a journey to the surface, and what you found along the way was unbelievable,” he continued. “It was creative only. A team in LA were going to do a prototype, but then 4A were gonna do that after Metro.

The released video for the Deep Six prototype shows off an underwater environment reminiscent of BioShock’s, with modern constructions and an establishment where humans are meant to live.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
