CC has just spotted recent job listing from Activision-owned studio Raven Software which reveals the studio is working on a "realistic, first-person military shooter”.
Interesting, wonder if anything official will come out soon?
hey look another FPS wait a minute sci fi and realistic how is that gonna work
realistic physics, hit response, recoil, and tactics based in a sci fi environment. hmm sounds like killzone... lol.
"Realistic" and "Sci-Fi"... don't go together...
@nix "Realistic" and "Real" don't have to go together. Look at call of duty, filled with real things but very unrealistic. A game can have unrealistic elements but still handle in a realistic manner. ARMA II with laser and plasma weapons and hover vehicles would still be more realistic than Call of Duty.
Raven means there's a big change it'll be good *puts on shades
The article agrees with you, if you read it.
Ooh, a 'First Person Shooter Military Shooter'. Extra shootery. Bad title is bad. ***It’s all a little confusing. A realistic, first-person military shooter is mentioned, yet the addition of sci-fi and fantasy effects throws the hope of something realistic out the window, surely?*** Actually, it's not at all confusing. They're looking for someone that can work on more than just the current project. Someone that can be leveraged to work on other titles that may come. It's the same thing most job listings do, they ask for the sun and the sky in hopes of getting someone with a good mixture of experience backed by skill and knowledge. Note, the game is still a first-person military shooter, they just hope that they find a person who has experience working in other genres as well. Doesn't mean the game they're being hired for right now will utilize anything sci-fi or fantasy related.
SOLDIER OF FORTUNE 3 PLEASE GOD PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! Huge SOF2 player here.
Weird one. I could guess CoD, but I would still be a little sceptical due to Raven's efforts on the not-so-good Wolfenstein recently. We'll have to wait and see.
Going from the job description it looks like it could be a whole heap of things!
God, i hope its not another COD. Wolfenstein and Wolverine were awesome, OTT games, I would hate for the devs to be tied down to realism. Make a sequel to Wolfenstein or Wolverine, otherwise make a new IP!
COD isn't realistic so that's out of the question maybe a completely new IP
Please Raven let it be another Soldier Of Fortune!!! The first 2 games of the series that were made by Raven were amazing unlike the third one that nearly killed the series for me but wasn't made by Raven(I think).
Killzone version for the PC, yes :) Guys, don't take litteral please.............. We all know that Killzone is the most realistic for consoles.
Yeah, you are so right! (Sarcasm btw in case your too dumb to notice)
So... let's think about this for a second. It's realistic, though it's a sci-fi fantasy. WTF kind of logic is that??
Its because most sci-fis aren't logical. The devs usually come up with some super alien race bent on destroying humans. I'm betting these guys are going with the humans vs. humans route. Like two colonies in space starting a war between eachother. This is a lot more realistic and could happen if we colonize on different planets/moons.
Like... Killzone or something?
Ya. Kinda. I'm thinking more of shattered horizon though. Its two different colonies fighting each other.
Singularity combined military with sci-fi. That game surprised me in a good way, so I wouldn't mind a sequel. However, I believe sales weren't all that well...
It's just worded so bad...
Hope its the new soldier of fortune, last one was awful though.
yes,a real SOF sequel would be so awesome
I really liked Singularity. Maybe it's a sequel? or something in the same vein. Either way I know Raven software aren't that popular but I think there games are real good, the MP components are generally tacked on and perhaps suck, but for me Singularities Singleplayer was much more entertaining than Bioshock 2s.
Singularity would have done better if it actually got proper advertising. Instead, Kotick decided he needed additional toilet paper (money) that month.
i thought that activision closed this studio and made the employess work on maps for black ops!
Sounds like a game they haven't really defined or created. Gotta love rumors.
Singularity was pretty awesome. These guys are legends when it comes to original IPs from the past to now. I really hope Acti don't just set them down to make the occasional CoD.
I dont think that raven could make COD game, ive been playing raven games for years (since heretic) and the pace of their games isnt nowere near to the fast paced acition of COD I really hope they release Singularity 2, raven always made two games for their IPs (herectic, hexen, SoF)
-i really enjoyed Singularity! :) has anyone played Wolfenstein?? i was thinking about getting that now, I love the Nazi/Sci-Fi themes, but how is Gameplay??
dude. buy it. buy it a hundred times.
-and on that note, buy it i shall! :D
It may be a 007 game from ive heard
