Share this:

Curious what the Fumito Ueda next game is? You’re not the only one. Known for his work on Shadow of The Colossus. ICO, and most recently The Last Guardian, head of GenDesign studio, Fumito Ueda has confirmed that their unannounced project is ready for a publisher.

In a lengthy article about the Kowloon Night funding program, Polygon was given the opportunity to sit down with multiple developers part of the program, including former Sony employee Fumito Ueda. Now leading his own studio, GenDesign, Ueda has confirmed that the team has been working on a project over the past year that is currently wrapping up its prototype phase.

“The extensive prototyping period was worthwhile and we are making very good progress,” Ueda says. “I believe this project will showcase both unexpected and familiar elements in one.”

Polygon confirms in the article that the team had recently finished the initial development phase that Kowloon Night funded, and that the developers are ready to show it off to large publishers. From the sound of it, the team is still a long ways off from even showing it to the public, though we’re sure once a publisher does pick it up development will surely ramp up.

GenDesign was founded in 2014 by Famito Ueda and houses other members whom have previously worked on ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. The studio is based out in Tokyo and is currently independent.

Which publisher are you hoping to pick up this project? Sony? Microsoft? Nintendo maybe? Or perhaps one of the many multi platform publishers out there? Let us know down below!
