High Voltage Software, the developers behind the upcoming Conduit 2 have a new title in the works, switching the Wii-remote for Kinect on Xbox 360.
The as-of-yet unannounced title is being published by 2K, and won’t specifically require Kinect to work. Chief creative officer Eric Nofsinger told Eurogamer that “It’s not announced yet. We’re doing that with 2K. It’s a licensed game. That’s our bread and butter as a developer. That’s how we’ve stayed in business for almost 18 years. We don’t develop for just one hardware. We don’t develop for just one genre of game. We don’t develop with just one publisher. We’ve diversified all the way through.”
Strangely, Nofsinger didn’t seem all that enthusiastic about using Microsoft’s new device, “This game works well with or without the Kinect. It’s supported as a device, so if you have the device it works very well, but I don’t think it’s this brilliant, genius idea. It works really well because it’s a 360 game. I don’t think it necessarily works really well because it’s a Kinect game.”
Kinect or no Kinect we look forward to the game’s announcement “around GDC”.
