RUMOR on Xbox Game Studios: Investigative Game Pentiment and an Intriguing Project Midnight in Development at Obsidian and Compulsion

We already know the names of several upcoming projects thanks to Xbox Game Studios or Xbox Game Studios Publishing in the coming years. But rumors may have allowed us to identify the identities of others, such as IO Interactive’s Project Dragon, Project Shaolin on the Wu-Tang Clan, Stoic Studios’ Project Belfry, or much less. Specific projects Project Cobal of inXile and Project Indus of Oxide Games.

Two more made headlines this week, again thanks to the indiscretions of Windows Central’s Jez Corden and VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb. The first would have as its final title (and not in code name) Pentiment, a reference to repentance, a part covered with a painting to deliberately hide an earlier painting. It would be developed by Obsidian Entertainment, and more specifically by a small team of a dozen people led by Josh Sawyer (Fallout: New Vegas, Pillar of Eternity), while the rest of the studio is working on Avowed. It would take place in Europe in the seventeenth century and would narrate a macabre investigation in the form of a narrative role-playing game with many branches, multiple-choice dialogues and decisions to be made, for a highly interactive story, a priori with little or no, there is no fight. Its creation would be early, since the launch would be planned for the moment from 2022.

The other game would be the next from Compulsion Games (Contrast, We Happy Few), nicknamed Project Midnight. It would immerse us in a world of gothic, dark and fantastic aesthetics, inspired by the southern United States, for an adult tale story. The third-person game would be action-oriented, with magic, supernatural creatures and a strong story, exclusively playable alone. Jez Corden has been quite successful in getting her hands on concept art that shows a dwelling that resembles a human nest, some kind of harpy, and the protagonist.

Midnight Windows Central Project

Pending confirmation from Microsoft, these Xbox Game Studios projects are still hypothetical, but we must admit they make you want to. If they see the light, they will always be added to Xbox Game Pass from its launch: you can subscribe to the service in the Ultimate version for € 12.99 per month.
