The studio behind Chronicles of Riddick and The Darkness, Starbreeze, is working on a brand new IP, its announced today.

Josef Fares, an award-winning writer & director, and Swedish company The Story Lab are assisting the studio with the project.

The studio, which currently comprises of 90 staff members, hasn’t disclosed much about the new project, but said that Farsan –  who has had several cinematic hits in the Nordic region – approached it with a concept which it found irresistible.

“Just minutes into Josef’s presentation we knew that this was a game that we wanted to develop, and we started to work on the concept the very same day” said Mikael Nermark, Starbreeze CEO.

“I love games, and I have been working on a games concept for quite some time,” added Fares. “The more I worked with the concept, the more convinced I felt that this is a solid game idea. Together with Story Lab we created a prototype that we presented to Starbreeze, and they instantly liked the concept.”

Starbreeze is currently developing the remake of classic Bullfrog-developed title Syndicate for a release early next year.
