Platinum Games Teases Entirely New IP

Platinum Games are teasing a new game, and it’s reportedly entirely separate from anything they’ve done before.

The news comes from this year’s BitSummit (via DualShockers), where Platinum Games producer Atsushi Inaba teased the game during a keynote presentation.

He described the new game as a “formless, shapeless IP,” but couldn’t go into further details as to what the game is about. He did note, however, that the game will be directed by someone new, and it currently has no name.

During last year’s BitSummit, Platinum Games teased the idea of producing a new IP – this could very well easily be that game.

Finally, Inaba noted during his talk that he’s unsure if Platinum Games can keep up with their current output of one game release per year.

What kind of game would you like to see via Platinum Games? Sound off in the comments below!

    As long as they create amazing fun games, I’ll gladly wait and buy it

    If Microsoft truly fucked them over and handed Scalebound to a new studio then I want to see something similar to that game.I want to see Platinum in direct competition with Microsoft because I bet they will come out on top.

    Hopefully it will have cute girls or toxically masculine dudes instead of Donte

    “Please be excited!”

    They may have caught the Square bug.

    Platinum are quite creative with their own IPs. I’m glad that they are putting more time into the game – when they rush things the final products become unpolished and in some cases downright bad.

    So much for they’re risking going under. Sounds like they have so much work they don’t know if they can finish it all in time.

    Looking forward it, i hope it’s something fresh and not recycled.

    Sounds like they have at least an idea in their heads!

    Certain Canadian devs are sweating right now.

    I am sure they will remaster both for PC and PS4. Mostlikely nier will be first.

    In terms of quality I’m sure, but not in terms of sales.

    You know what could be awesome? A post apocalyptic kungfu Western.

    You play as a martial artist type, wandering a wasteland and kicking ass with sweet kungfu combos.

    To be honest, a no frills, no nonsense, just plain martial arts game from platinum would be sweet as hell.

    2B + Vanquish shooter mechanics + ME3 style squad system but you can assume full control of squadmate and power detonations.

    What do I have to do for a game like this???
