It’s never too late for a comeback. Toadman Interactive has announced that a third I.G.I. game is in development and currently slated to release in 2021. There’s no official title just yet (the current working title seems to be I.G.I. Origins) but like its predecessors, it will be a tactical first person shooter. Check out the teaser below.
From a story point of view, this will be a prequel that focuses on the origin of the I.G.I. itself. The game is currently being prototyped. Regarding the announcement, Toadman Interactive CEO Robin Flodin said, “I’m so psyched to announce that the prototyping is going well and we already have a fun base game to play in the studio. Today, we are releasing a teaser showing a glimpse of our prototyping and many things will improve as we continue the development.
“The reason we are sending out this update is so that we can allow enthusiasts to provide ideas and feedback when we are in the early stages of development. We want to hear from you fans to make sure you get to see the most out of this game.”
Project I.G.I. will be unfamiliar to most. Developed by Innerloop Studios, the first title released for PC in 2000 and was met with mixed reactions regarding its AI. It was popular enough to warrant a sequel, Project I.G.I. 2: Covert Strike, which suffered from many of the same flaws, along with no save games. How will I.G.I. fare in today’s modern shooter market? Time will tell, but check out the official website for more information and leave your feedback.
