A new Xbox Series X and Series S exclusive could be revealed soon, with We Happy Few developer, Compulsion Games, reportedly working on something ‘dark’ for the console.
The news comes by way of a prominent Xbox insider, who says the “dark fantasy third-person action-adventure game” will be exclusive to Xbox Series X and Series S, and that it won’t be a sequel to We Happy Few.
Klobrille, a well-known Xbox insider and forum regular, outlined the genre for the game in response to a video outlining Microsoft’s studio acquisitions as they announced it at E3 2018.
Klobrille’s comment came a few weeks after an interview with Compulsion’s Naila Hadjas over at Xbox Squad, in which they confirm the studio is working on something new.
“With our new game, a narrative, third-person, story game, I don’t think we need any feedback,” Hadjas said. “It’s not like a roguelike where you replay it multiple times and you need data to make sure the experience is fun.”
The game is currently in “full development”, and it won’t have an early access release like We Happy Few did.
“We Happy Few has evolved a lot, at the beginning it was a rogue-like and then we added a story because people loved the world, the characters, so we said ‘okay, we’re going to make a game with an end and a story’. The next game is a story, we know where we are going,” Hadjas explained.
While there doesn’t appear to be any specific mention of Xbox Series X exclusivity in the interview, given Compulsion is a studio of Xbox Game Studios, it goes without saying that we have at least one new exclusively on the horizon for Xbox.
