Flying Wild Hog has shown off Shadow Warrior 3, which features the return of Lo Wang in a bloody first person shooter akin to previous games, but it has other projects in the works. It’s partnered with Focus Home Interactive for a new title that will be the studio’s “most ambitious game to date.” As of now, however, the name and release window are unknown.
With regards to the partnership, Focus Home Interactive COO John Bert stated that, “We at Focus have a directive to bring exciting and innovative games to the market, and with their upcoming title, we know Flying Wild Hog will reach the objectives we have on all of our projects, in terms of both quality and originality. We’re enthusiastic to be working with this professional team, who are masters in the art of creating spectacular, action-packed games.”
Flying Wild Hog CEO Michal Szustak added further that, “Focus Home Interactive is the perfect partner for Flying Wild Hog. We both share a love for creating unique, exciting worlds filled with crazy gameplay. We also deeply care for quality and creativity. Focus’s team supports us not only with great trust for our vision, but also helps us to forge that vision into an outstanding game. We are sure that our partnership will bloom into an amazing experience for players around the world. Fans of original action games can expect quite a surprise!”
Focus Home Interactive has a reputation for publishing a diverse range of games. It published Deck13 Interactive’s The Surge 2 and Spiders’ GreedFall, the former being a sci-fi Souls-like while the latter is a third person action RPG. Future projects include the likes of Sumo Digital’s Hood: Outlaws and Legends.
As for Shadow Warrior 3, it’s being published by Devolver Digital and is currently slated to release in 2021 for PC. The level design is more linear than previous titles but features a lot more platforming as Lo Wang wall-runs, grapples and dashes his way through. Stay tuned for more details on it in the coming months.
