Warner Bros. Seattle general manager Laura Fryer has suggested that a new game from Monolith Productions could be announced in the coming weeks, pointing to an E3 announcement from the F.E.A.R. 2 developer.
Talking to Develop magazine about her forthcoming appearance at the Develop conference in July, Fryer said that "by conference time we should also be able to talk about the latest game from the creative team behind No One Lives Forever and F.E.A.R., and what we’ve learned along the way."
That’ll be Monolith, then.
A new game from Monolith was first hinted at all the way back in June 2009 when a job ad revealed that the team was looking for a software engineer to work on "a cutting-edge first-person action game on PlayStation 3, XBox 360 and PC."
Current job ads on Monolith’s website point to the possibility of the game being an open-world title, with one asking for an "expert in level/world design/layout/creation, game-play/AI setup/scripting for large AAA action/adventure or open-world games."
Monolith has previously developed the superb Austin Powers-alike No One Lives Forever series, as well as Condemned and F.E.A.R 1 and 2. The studio was acquired by Warner Bros in 2004.
Could an E3 reveal for the studio’s next game be on the cards?
