A new studio founded by ProbablyMonsters announced they are developing a new next generation co-op RPG. The team includes people who previously worked on Borderlands and Torchlight.
When a team consisting of developers who are already on Borderlands and Torchlight have been working, announcing a new role-playing game, then you can listen carefully.
A new co-op RPG is coming
ProbablyMonsters is a game company that is starting new development studios. In the meantime, the third has been pounded out of the ground with an interesting team composition. On board are college friends John Dunbar and Marsh Lefler, who worked together at Flagship Studios to create Mythos before co-founding Runic Games in 2008. Patrick Blank, originally Lead Level Designer at Borderlands, and Allen Fong from Perfect World will also be there.
So the developers have experience in creating action RPGs. Both Borderlands and Torchlight are games that have been well received and have something in common. This includes the loot spiral, i.e. the search for more and more loot, as well as quests and action-packed battles against loads of enemies.
Now a next-gen co-op RPG is to be created. That sounds a lot like a mixture of Borderlands and Torchlight with particularly good graphics for the new PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles. However, nothing more is known about this project so far. We neither know which scenario we will see, be it science fiction or fantasy, nor do we know when we can expect the title.
But we can prepare for an interesting role-play project. An MMORPG will apparently not and what it looks like with a single player mode is also unclear. But if you are into co-op games, you might well keep an eye on it.
