It has been confirmed that Guerrilla Games are working on an open-world sci fi role-playing game, via a AMA on Reddit.
During the AMA Senior Online Producer, Samrat Sharma said this about the game:
. “Open games are a very different beast, and an unprepared team can spend loads of people and money making content for an open game (I used to work for Ubisoft, so I know the pitfalls to avoid). Thankfully, we have an ever curious technical team that is not resting on its laurels and investigating new frontiers that help us push our content in new an interesting directions. As for open, specifically, you’ll have to wait for the next game’s announcement to see what it does.”
They also confirmed that the game will not be at E3, what a bummer.
