Irrational's Project Icarus to be trailered next Thursday


Irrational's confirmed the public will get its first sighting of the studio's new game, codenamed Project Icarus, next Thursday in a debut trailer for it.

It'll come a day after the game will be shown to US press in New York next Wednesday.

"Next week, we'll begin breaking that long silence and start speaking out," said Irrational's Shawn Elliott in a special episode on the studio's podcast.

"On August 12, we'll show you a trailer and tell you about our title. We'll explore that trailer's secrets in another longer episode of Irrational Behaviour. And finally, you'll learn about a live demo that we're showing to press before you see it for yourself."

People have also been ringing a special phone number to guess what game the studio has been making. You can hear what was said, every from a new IP and SWAT 5 to System Shock 3 and BioShock 3, on the podcast. Listen to it anyways, just for the SWAT rap.

In the meantime, keep your eyes glued on whatisicarus.com to see if any hints come about before then.
