Forza Horizon Dev, Playground Making a Non-Racing, Open World Game

"We've become pretty good at racing games, but we'd love to prove ourselves in a different genre."

This is great for them considering they're an incredible developer, what worries me is that they haven't even opened their second studio, this means the new game will release at least in 2020, at the earliest.

excited as well. Criterion went from the Burnout series to making BLACK, which was one of my favorite shooters on Xbox. Even though, I don't have an xbox one, I would love to see what they could do!

I can see others are being slowly inspired by Guerilla Games type risks with Horizon Zero Dawn. That's good. They even stated that their new game could possible even come to the Ps4...Show me what you got

gamer11382660d ago

IGN made that suggestion about PS4. I would be surprised if the game wasn't at least a timed exclusive for Xbox considering how closely tied playground have been to Xbox. Turn 10 and Playground have worked together on the Forza engine.

XXanderXX2659d ago

Screw timed , rather full on exclusive. Timed Windows are dumb either full exclusive or no deal.

Remedy had close ties to Xbox and the 2 new IP they're working on will not be tied to Microsoft (source: https://www.videogamer.com/... )...So close ties doesn't necessarily mean much.

Inspired, Tell me is Guerilla the first developer to work on a genre and then try out another? Think not.

Kiwi662659d ago (Edited 2659d ago )

News Flash GG weren''t the first nor the last studio to try something different to what they usually do, but you think that only studios linked to sony/ps are the only ones who are capable of doing this

Bruh2658d ago

Yeah but Playground Games was actually amazing in the genre they were working on before trying something new

rainslacker2658d ago

I say the more variety the better. I'm all for developers spreading their wings. It's easy enough to get into a rut if you keep making the same game over and over again, and quite a few of the top brass at a lot of studios tend to be extremely creative types, with lots of good ideas.

Would be very interested to see what their open world game turns out to be.

Playground makes really good games. Can't wait to hear more!

Chaos_Order2659d ago

Good to hear. No doubting Forza Horizon is a solid racing series, but the devs may want to tackle something more ambitious.
