Some former CD Projekt Red developers are working on a new online action game set in feudal Japan. This week, Dark Passenger cofounders Jakub Behn and Marcin Michalski announced the creation of the studio, as well as calling for talent in a series of tweets. Ben and Michalsky were part of the art team that not only worked on The Witcher 3 but Cyberpunk 2077 as well.
At the moment, the first Dark Passenger game doesn’t have a title, but the studio’s website has some interesting details about the game. Ben and Michalsky say they want to create an online multiplayer game that supports both competitive and coop play. It looks like the title will borrow some elements from games like Titanfall and Absolver. “Our movement system will allow players to perform incredible [feats] for example, running on arrows fired by other players, quickly climbing vertical surfaces using shuko claws, or using [a] Yari spear like a pole to jump over obstacles,” the studio said in a statement. “Involvement [in] Close combat will require as much dexterity as tactics and close cooperation with teammates.” Sounds pretty amazing, to be honest. I’m already intrigued.
