Can’t be Bloodlines 2. That game only recently got assigned to a different studio, like months ago. If Arkane was that, then they were idly sitting since 2017 after release of Prey till the start of this year which I don’t think is true, but even if it were, there hasn’t been enough time to announce it at this E3 if it were the case, cuz what could Arkane have done in this short span of a time to show that the game is now gonna feel and play like an Arkane game? It’d just be “hey you remember that other game? Yeah we’re taking it over, that’s all” which would be disappointing.
Also everyone would then be curious what was put on hold from 2018 to 2021 for Arkane to ship this game, it would be a mess.
Would be insane if it were Castlevania but I highly doubt it.
It was Arkane Lyon up until Dishonored: DotO (I don’t know about Deathloop) that they were working with their custom version of id tech engine. Arkane Austin used CryEngine for Prey and Mooncrash but the last Prey expansion (Typhon Hunter) was UE4. I remember reading that they changed from CryEngine to UE4 for the Typhon Hunter so they could get used to UE4…so I’m assuming that Omen is Unreal Engine as well, most likely UE4 considering when the development of the game started.
If those images are from the actual game, im even more interested than I was before. Hoping for a gameplay trailer in two weeks. Please don’t be CGI only. If it is, I would prefer them to hold the reveal until gameplay is ready. If they reveal the game with CGI and then immediately follow it up with a gameplay trailer, then im good. Also hoping for 2022!!!
I hope so too because I feel it would generate more excitement since it is game play after all. I do think if the game is at E3, we will get a CGI trailer. In fact I think we will get two throughout the whole show: This game and Project Typhoon.
