Codenamed “Project 2,” Playdead game director Arnt Jensen has revealed that the game won’t be out for the next two years…at the very least.
In an interview with IGN, Jensen states, “We took a lot of financial risk to release Limbo only when we felt it was ready and we are prepared to do so again.”
This sentiment is shared by Playdead boss Dino Patti, who added, “Money is never the primary factor when we make decisions.”
While this is obviously bad news, there’s a little silver-lining out of all this. Project 2 will be using the Unity engine and that means it won’t be hard to release on mulitplayer platforms once it’s released. Of course, this doesn’t mean it will be out for all platforms at launch as we don’t know if Sony or Microsoft will dole out copious amounts of money for timed-exclusivity.
Can you wait for two more years to play Playdead’s next game?
