Godfall, a looter slasher action RPG by Counterplay Games, debuted in late 2020, and while its gleaming visuals piqued some interest in the lead-up to its release, it didn’t take long for gamers to realize that the game itself was riddled with flaws. If, on the other hand, you saw potential in it and in Counterplay Games as a developer, you might be interested in seeing what the studio is working on next.
Counterplay Games recently posted a job ad for a producer position, stating that the company is working on “an undisclosed cooperative action fantasy shooter.” There isn’t much else in the job ad in terms of project information, however, it appears to be structured around a live service concept, with the job listing mentioning “live operations AAA gaming.”
Of course, we’ll have to wait a while to find out exactly what this game is, but it’ll be intriguing to see what lessons the company learns from Godfall and how it applies them to this new game.
Meanwhile, a job posting for a “next-gen platform engineer” seeks someone who can “build and manage systems and tools to enable next-gen console platform development,” implying that the company’s next game will not be a PlayStation exclusive like Godfall.
According to other advertisements, the next game would be “heavily combat-focused” and will most likely have “synchronized multi-character animations (assassinations).”
When Godfall was shown at The Game Awards 2019, it became the first officially announced PS5 game.
The game, however, has received mixed reviews since its release, with a Metacritic score of 61 on PS5 and 59 on PC.
In November 2020, it was published as a timed exclusive for PS5 and PC via the Epic Games Store and was then released on PlayStation 4 alongside an expansion named Fire & Darkness.
Godfall, along with Mortal Shell and Lego DC Super-Villains, was offered gratis as one of the PlayStation Plus games for December 2021.
