Creative Assembly has revealed that it is developing a first-person shooter based on original IP.
The as-yet unnamed game’s existence was revealed in a tweet, showing a photo of film director Neill Blomkamp visiting Creative Assembly’s studio, accompanied by the text: “So, this happened. @NeillBlomkamp dropped by CA HQ for a behind-the-scenes look at the development of our brand-new FPS IP!”
Blomkamp replied to that tweet: “The FPS they are building is extremely cool. Amazing core concept. Had an awesome time. Thanks @CAGames for hosting me!” Speculation is rife that the game will fall into the sci-fi genre, since Blomkamp is best known for sci-fi movies such as District 9 and Elysium.
An original-IP first-person shooter would represent something of a departure for the Horsham, Sussex-based developer. It is best known for its string of Total War RTS games, and its only previous venture into the realms of a first-person perspective was 2014’s survival-horror game Alien Isolation.
