Mercury Steam’s new, unannounced game will be “completely different” from Castlevania and is scheduled for the PS4 and Xbox One, but not the Wii U.
During a roundtable interview for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, producer Dave Cox has announced that Mercury Steam is working on a new, unannounced game for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One that’s “completely different” from the Castlevania series the studio’s known for. Unfortunately for Wii U owners, it won’t come to Nintendo’s console, for reasons yet to be revealed.
While Cox remains tight-lipped about the studio’s future game, he did reveal that a number of ideas that never made it into Lords of Shadow 2, which includes combat mechanics, might be implemented in the studio’s next-gen debut.
Lastly, if you’re hoping to play Lords of Shadow 2 on the PS4 or Xbox One, don’t hold your breath, as Cox admits that while the studio considered the option last year, Konami has no plans to port the game to the new consoles since it would mean changing the game’s engine significantly.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is set for a February 25 release for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 and picks up right where the first Lords of Shadow left off.
