no news about the game? 

After doing a lil search it appears the cinematic director was going to GDC in march but as far as i can tell they didn't appear at the show? He posted a picture of an everywhere dossier of some form but strangley he only used the tagline #buildarocketboy and not the tag of the companys actual twitter handle. Apart from the initial recruitment drive they did on their twitter its looking pretty dead for the last 6 months plus.

Like I said before, I get the impression that Benzies and co. are running this thing 'R* style' - i.e., months/years of radio silence, and we'll probably not hear anything until they've got something resembling the finished product to show off.

 

Same with CDPR and Cyberpunk 2077, come to think of it - game was announced in May 2012, had a pre-rendered proof-of-concept teaser trailer released eight months later, and then ...nothing, until last year's big reveal of the WIP stuff. Five years, and not a peep - the only reason why people didn't pay quite so much attention was because CDPR was also working on The Witcher 3, so no-one was wondering "hmm, is that Cyberpunk thing DOA?".

 


Better that, IMO, than something like Star Citizen - a game that needs to show off stuff to mollify the Kickstarter backers who want proof that their money isn't just going up in smoke, but with that coming at the cost of just getting on with the game behind closed doors, and only showing stuff off when the whole thing is ready. Or worst-case scenario: Build A Rocket Boy fails to launch (heh - intentional bad pun... :p), but at least it just fizzles out and people don't really notice anything, rather than a high-profile game dev veteran having to publicly shutter their new venture after things don't work out.

2021 at the very earliest - because that'd be five years from the establishment of Benzies' new outfit, and that's on a par with, say, Hardsuit Labs and Bloodlines 2 (studio founded in 2015, got the V:tM license and started work on the game almost immediately, game is set to come out in 2020), or Spiders and Greedfall (apparently been in the works for five years, too).

 

I mean, I wouldn't be totally surprised if Volition managed to get the recently-announced new Saints Row game out next year - assuming they started on it shortly after Agents of Mayhem (and that awful round of layoffs in September 2017... :( ), then a late 2020/early 2021 release wouldn't be unreasonable, considering Saints Row III had a similar-length dev cycle. But that's still a game from an established studio, going back to a tried-and-tested format - for a brand-new company, working on something from scratch, and with what little we've heard so far implying that this isn't going to be some by-the-numbers thing like a CoD-clone FPS or what-have-you, it's going to take a fair sight more time.

I personally hate the sci-fi aspect of it. Was hoping for a different style.

If an absolute masterpiece of this caliber were to transpire, pushing unprecedented, simulated realism within a procedurally-generated planet to serve as the navigable map... Mr. Benzies and his own arsenal of crusaders would forge video game history. 🙂

 

And if this intellectual property hits the market, it has the potential to decimate the Pricedown franchise, a franchise of which my adolescent-streak salutes.

I am hopeful that Mr. Benzies unleashes the horses very soon. With the PlayStation 5 hitting the market holiday of 2020, this gorgeous production will hopefully soon befriend the globe. 🙂

Not much - although looking at BARB Ltd.'s filing history, it looks like (I'm not an expert - someone correct me if I'm wrong!) NetEase is now a shareholder.

 

Now, at first I thought that might be something to do with either Chinese publishing and online hosting, or even online services for the game in general. Looking a bit further, though, I'm thinking it's more in line with what NetEase has been doing with other private (as opposed to publicly-traded) game studios recently - purchasing a minority stake in the likes of Quantic Dream and Bungie.

 

...in other words, that probably translates to some significant investment from NetEase - bearing in mind that Bungie just got over $100 million out of their deal. Also (and this part shouldn't be surprising, considering next-gen consoles are scheduled to come out as early as next year), both the Bungie and QD deals emphasise next-gen games - Bungie's statements mention "new worlds" (i.e., games post-Destiny 2), and QD's specifically mention next-gen games. In fact, that seems to be NetEase's overall aim, here - to quote VP Ethan Wang:

 

“With a strong focus on in-house development, we are constantly looking for partners that complement us in the development and creation of the next generation games”

 

Looks like BARB is one of those partners, if I'm not mistaken - and already in with some not-too-shabby-at-all company, to boot. We're still largely in the dark about specifics, but at the very least, it looks like Benzies and co. aren't messing around...

I know they are in hardcore hiring mode. Been approached by 3 recruiters so far with positions at BARB. They definitely got a ton of cash and are going hard at getting talent.

Going to be genuinely very interesting to see what he's cooking. He undoubtedly has a sh*t ton of pull, it will be very interesting to see what a Houser-less Benzies can cook up.

Leslie Benzies: Yep, that’s what you call Game of Eternity. That’s all the horsepower that’s gonna come at the player, straight out of this game’s ambition. It’s over, baby.’

I edited for a more appropriate sentiment.
