Developers returning to Housemarque confirm they are working on a new IP

Housemarque, the developer behind the PlayStation 5 exclusive Returnal, is officially working on a new IP VentureBeat Report. The Finnish studio revealed this information in a post-award interview during the DICE Awards in Las Vegas last week.

With Sony recently acquired Bungie, the industry is theorizing that the company is working more to cover its bases in the live services and multiplayer markets. With Housemarque as a studio creating single-player experiences, the studio leaders don’t seem too concerned about losing the creative freedoms that the studio currently has.

In response to this topic in the DICE Awards room, Housemarque CEO Ilari Kuitttinen said, “Well, the jury is still out. We are one of the last dinosaurs to create arcade games. Nex Machina was, a few years ago, a coin-based survival shooter from the 80s. That’s a clue. But it’s interesting. We have thought about that. We’ve been working on multiplayer games for a while, because a couple of years ago, it seemed like you needed to have some sort of multiplayer experience. We tried that, and we really didn’t. But those were early days when we started a new game, a new IP, accepted it. We’ll see what comes with that. ”

In the past, Housemarque was known for creating traditional arcade titles including Resogun and Nex Machina, both of which were PlayStation console exclusives leading up to their buy back last year. Developers returning to Housemarque confirm they are working on a new IP
