EA, publisher of FIFA and Mass Effect, has signed a publishing partnership with Koei Tecmo and Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force for the “next great hunting game.” The title will be released under the EA Originals label, which has already helped ship critically acclaimed projects like It Takes Two, a Game of the Year winner in 2021.
The adventure will be a “truly AAA experience” set in a “fantasy feudal Japan” – a dream for ourselves. ShogunrockThen!
“The EA team fully embraces our creative freedom and has become an invaluable partner offering both development and publishing support,” said Yosuke Hayashi, executive vice president of Koi Tecmo. “Combining EA’s global resources with our own will help us introduce a new type of hunting game to a global audience of players and expand our reach into global markets. I truly look forward to the day when players around the world can play this new game.”
EA bigwig Jeff Gaiman added: “Building on the incredible success of EA Originals, including recent releases It Takes Two and Knockout City, we’re thrilled to partner with the incredibly talented Omega Force team. They’ve elevated the hunting genre to the next level, blending their proven talent for combat gameplay with unexpected and innovative mechanics. We can’t wait to introduce their amazing new adventure to the world later this month.
