Deus Ex Studio Lends Credence to Rumour of Work on Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy

Early last year, a report emerged that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided developer, Eidos Montreal, was working on a Guardians of the Galaxy project, and recent comments from key team members have lent support to those rumours.

Speaking to PCGamesN, studio boss David Anfossi mentioned that the team is currently at work on three games: Shadow of the Tomb Raider, The Avengers Project (in collaboration with Crystal Dynamics), and another, unannounced project. While said project could be either a new Thief or Deus Ex, Anfossi quashed the supposition of either. Of Thief, he said “for the moment there [are] no plans around that franchise.” Meanwhile,  although Deus Ex is “the brand of the studio,” Anfossi said that the team “cannot do everything,” suggesting that this third game is not a return to that bleak cyberpunk future.

Furthermore, in another interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Anfossi strongly implied that the project is not a new IP in a comment that he “would definitely like, at some point, to try and create a new universe.”

In conjunction with each other, these statements only rule out several options, and it could just as easily be a reboot of Crystal Dynamics’s dormant Legacy of Kain franchise as Guardians of the Galaxy. However, given that Square Enix has signed a multi-year, multi-game partnership with Marvel for The Avengers, the publisher would be sensible to have more than one of its flagship studios leading such a project, particularly considering Eidos Montreal’s long history of collaboration with Crystal Dynamics. In addition to The Avengers Project, the team has previously contributed to the Tomb Raider reboot and Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
