Splash Damage Says It’ll Be Announcing New Titles On New Platforms
Splash Damage, the studio under the Bethesda umbrella that brought us the class-based shooter Brink last year, is working on some new titles — and they’ll be bringing them to platforms the company previously hasn’t explored.
CEO Paul Wedgwood released a statement regarding Splash Damage’s 2012 plans, calling the year the company’s “most significant” to date.
“We’ve hired some amazing new talent, strengthening our team in key areas,” Wedgwood said in the statement. “We’ll be revealing new titles – both on platforms we’ve previously visited (including the PC and the world’s leading consoles), as well as exploring spaces completely new to us. Finally, we’ve got some special things planned to take full advantage of the changes our industry is experiencing. This is a hugely exciting time for everyone here at the studio and we can’t wait to tell you about all the cool things we’ve got in store for you this year.”
Sounds like mobile games to me. But Wedgwood also gave the impression that Splash Damage would keep some focus on PCs, as well.
“And, awesomely, despite an entire decade’s worth of premature obituaries, the PC as a gaming platform is looking healthier than ever. All of this is transforming the ways games are made, sold, and played.”
Guess we’ll have to wait and see what all these nice but vague statements add up to in terms of games.
