Redfall Development Began in August 2017 – Rumor

A senior level architect's profile indicates that R&D and incubation began in 2017. However, full production would have begun later.

Arkane Studios has Deathloop coming up this year, which will be available for PS5 and PC at launch (with a one-year exclusivity period on Sony’s console). However, at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, it revealed a brand new IP called Redfall. Rumored as Omen before the event, Redfall is a co-op shooter set on an island in Massachusetts with players battling against vampires.

Though rumors of Redfall began months before the showcase, it seems to have been in development long before. Timur22 posted a screenshot for the work profile of a senior level architect at Arkane Austin which revealed that the game began R&D and incubation in August 2017. That means Redfall will be coming five years after its initial incubation (assuming it hits the Summer 2022 release window).

Of course, as insider Klobrille noted, full production on the title will have been less than that. It’s possible that development only properly began months after the release Prey: Mooncrash, a paid DLC pack that released in June 2018 for Prey. There isn’t a lot we know about Redfall right now, aside from it being open world and less of a run-and-gun horde shooter so stay tuned for more details in the coming year. It’s currently in development exclusively for Xbox Series X/S and PC.
