Returnal Developer Housemarque Reveals It’s Working On A New IP

Developer Housemarque is working on its next game, an unannounced new IP to follow 2021’s Returnal. However, we are probably still far from knowing what it is, as the game is still in the early stages of development.

“Now we are starting a new game, a new intellectual property, inventing it,” Housemarque Managing Director Ilari Kuittinen said at the DICE Awards. VentureBeat. “Let’s see what happens.”

“At this stage, we are very proud of what we have accomplished with Returnal, and we are very excited to be on the same trajectory as the company,” added Returnal Game Director Harry Krueger.

Whatever Housemarque is working on next will most likely be exclusive to the PlayStation console, as PlayStation acquired Housemarque back in June 2021. Prior to the acquisition, Housemarque had already worked closely with PlayStation on a number of titles such as Super Stardust HD., Dead Nation, Resogun, and most recently, Returnal.

Regarding the acquisition, Kuittinen said, “This gives our studio a clear future and a stable opportunity to continue to pursue gameplay-centric approaches while continuing to experiment with new storytelling techniques and pushing the boundaries of this contemporary art form.”

For now, we’ll have to settle for playing Returnal. Not bad – the game is great. In a GameSpot review of Returnal, Mike Epstein writes, “Does it take a little bit of courage to play Returnal? Yes. Is it necessary to be a glutton for punishment? It helps. I’m not sure if this is always the case, but Returnal makes a good case.”
