Speaking exclusively to VG247 at Develop in Brighton yesterday, Splash Damage boss Paul Wedgwood said that the firm’s upcoming, Bethesda-funded game would be seen on a par with Fallout 3 in terms of importance, and that the developer was striving to match its sugar-daddy’s RPG in terms of quality.
“I think Bethesda would be unhappy if we weren’t actively trying to kick their arse,” he said.
Fallout 3’s level of anticipation is the target, he said.
“Yeah absolutely,” Wedgwood added, when asked if the unannounced game would be seen on a par with the Bethesda action sequel. “I think that because of our mod-making routes may temper their expectations, but the fact is that Enemy Territory: Quake Wars has sold well, and it debuted at number one in both [the US and UK], and we’ve had loads of good reviews and scores. I don’t see any reason why we wouldn’t aim even higher the next time round.”
No date or specific detail has been given on the project as yet.
