Back in 2018, Square Enix opened up a brand new studio called Luminous Productions. Today, during the PS5 showcase, the studio’s first game was revealed. It’s a new IP called Project Athia (Working Title) and it made quite the first impression.
PROJECT ATHIA will transport players to a world filled with beauty and dismay as they set upon a thrilling story-led, action-packed adventure which can be twisted, tempestuous and forbidding.
As the teaser states, Project Athia is definitely still a work in-progress. Everything from the title to the footage shown is subject to change, but what was shown looks incredible. That’s due to Luminous Productions approach and philosophy when it comes to make games.
Luminous Productions is intent on harnessing the full power of PlayStation 5 for this game and providing “gaming experience like never before, fusing together the latest technology with art.” If the teaser is any indication, we could be in for something special.
Project Athia is currently being designed for PS5, but it won’t be an exclusive. It will also release on PC. The new IP is currently in development. As more news is revealed, we’ll have it here on Cinelinx.
