Housemarque had been keeping things very close to the vest about their three titles in development, but they finally gave out some details today as that “spiritual successor” to the Super Stardust franchise (still unnamed) is confirmed as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
The PlayStation 4 news from Housemarque doesn’t end there, as the studio is also working on another unannounced PS4 project. We’ll be hearing more about these two games in the coming months, so an E3 reveal is possible.
Ilari Kuittinen, CEO of Housemarque, discussed the PlayStation 4:
We are super excited to be working on Sony’s next-gen hardware. The platform’s performances are enabling us to do things that wouldn’t be possible otherwise and we truly believe that better technology can lead to better gameplay. The more tools and resources we have at our disposal, the better. Think of Super Stardust HD: at the time, PlayStation 3 gave us the opportunity to populate the game with thousands of interactive objects and implement the game’s famous ‘spherical gameplay’. Today, we can take advantage of the architecture of PlayStation 4 to create incredible visuals with direct impact on the way the new game feels.
Do you expect the spiritual successor to be another twin-stick style shooter? Let us know in the comments below.
