Double Fine’s new games, plural, will be announced “pretty soon”.
In the same interview where he threw a lovely five letter word Activision CEO Bobby Kotick’s way, studio head Tim Schafer confirmed that the studio’s next games have found a publisher or publishers.
“Uh-huh,” he said when asked the question.
What the games are or who’s publishing them is kept a secret for the time being, but not for long: “They’re going to announce the games pretty soon.”
A thing of note: during the interview, Schafer didn’t rule out a new Psychonauts game; “I didn’t say I wasn’t doing it.”
While all their games are always ‘wrapped up’ and happily left behind as stand-along products, Schafer explains, “some of them, like Psychonauts, there’s obviously more you could do with it.” So, could happen.
Same goes for a Brütal Legend sequel: “With Brutal, there’s a lot of stuff we had to remove for the first game that I would love to see the light of day at some time, stuff that was really cool.”
All fingers crossed then.
