Computerandvideogames has links to a video interview Michel Ancel gave, where he is quoted as saying…
“We are in an active creation stage and at this moment we are only focusing on the game and making it the best game that we can.”
When questioned about which platform the game might hit, Ancel said:
“That decision would just distract us from that objective. I can say that it’s a very ambitious game and we need some tech to achieve that ambition. We focus on the game. We create it first, then we’ll see what can run it. We don’t say 2013 because we don’t know when it will come. We’re working to create a great game and it needs more tech.”
“We had this concept even before Mirror’s Edge launched. And we have a different approach to the first person perspective that Mirror’s Edge has. Prince of Persia and Assassin’s Creed are closer to what we have in mind with the control of the character in a third person perspective. We use a very dynamic camera that shakes a lot during the action to add life to the camera, giving the impression of an action news cover team following Jade. Maybe that could be similar to Mirror’s Edge but the game itself is very different.”
One screenshot showing the new engine is action has also been released, so be sure to check it out below.
I can’t speak for everyone else, but this is perhaps the most exciting news I’ve heard in months. I can’t wait!
