Just Add Water (Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD) may not have made an appearance as one of the studios at the PlayStation meeting, but they announced on their blog today that they have a PlayStation 4 game in development:
It’s been a while since we’ve done a proper update about JAW on the blog. We’ve been quietly building a team we’re proud of, finding the best talent to give Oddworld the care and attention it deserves. In the last year, JAW has doubled in size, upgraded to bigger offices, released four games and the best is yet to come. You can see from our new team page how much talent and passion there is from this group of people.
By now you’ll have eagerly lapped up all the information from the Sony PlayStation announcement. You’ll have seen our name in the list of confirmed developers. We’re delighted to finally be able to tell you that JAW are developing for the Sony PlayStation 4. We can’t talk about what we’re working on just yet. Just be assured it’ll be worth the wait.
It was just over a month ago when Just Add Water started a poll to ask fans what game they wanted them to work on next, with Abe’s Exoddus HD barely leading over “something completely new on Oddworld.” We don’t know if that poll will directly influence what they’re doing on the next-gen console, but with Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee New ‘n’ Tasty slated to release around the same time as the PS4, there’s a chance it could be a port of that.
We’ll be sure to cover what Just Add Water is working on as soon as they announce it, so stay tuned to PSLS.
