EA has announced that it is partnering up with Koei Tecmo and Omega Force through its EA Originals label to develop and release a new game. While details on this new game are sparse, the announcement refers to it as “the next great hunting game”.

Adding the global resources of EA with our own will help us introduce a new kind of hunting game to a global audience of players and expand our reach into global markets. I’m really looking forward to the day that gamers from around the world can play this new game.”

“Building on the incredible success of EA Originals, which includes the recent releases of It Takes Two and Knockout City, we’re thrilled to be partnering with the amazingly talented Omega Force team,” said Jeff Gamon, General Manager of EA Partners. “They’ve elevated the hunting genre to the next level, merging their proven talent for combat gameplay with unexpected and innovative mechanics. We can’t wait to introduce their groundbreaking new adventure to the world later this month.”

Omega Force is a studio well-known for having worked on a number of major releases for musou spinoffs, including Hyrule Warriors, and games in major franchises like Fire Emblem, Dragon Quest, and Attack on Titan.

Under its EA Originals label, EA has helped in the development and publishing of several smaller games, including critically acclaimed titles like It Takes Two, Unravel Two, Sea of Solitude, and most recently, Lost in Random.
