Other than Marvel’s Avengers as its main E3 2019 highlight, Square Enix also announced a key project, OUTRIDERS. Developed by People Can Fly, the studio behind Gears of War Judgement and Bulletstorm, OUTRIDERS is described as a 1-3 player, drop-in-drop-out, co-op shooter, set in an original dark and desperate sci-fi universe. Square Enix External Studios, a development and publishing group based in London, will help to deliver OUTRIDERS. The game will release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in Summer 2020.
“OUTRIDERS is the game that we have been wanting to make for years,” said Sebastian Wojciechowski, Studio Head of People Can Fly. “We’re very happy to be working with Square Enix on this project, it’s a big undertaking for us and the team has grown considerably to work on OUTRIDERS. We now have over 200 developers at 4 international studios working on this project to make it our most ambitious shooter to date.”
“OUTRIDERS is a very exciting project for us at Square Enix External Studios. We’re focusing on giving players a true AAA co-op shooter with a deep feature set and strong narrative,” said Jon Brooke, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios. “The team at People Can Fly really know how to make gunplay feel tight and powerful and we can’t wait to show you more later this winter.” Enjoy the trailers here and wait for new updates!
