Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons creator teases new project (update)

New, 20 comments

Swedish film director and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons creator Josef Fares is working on a new game, he told Digital Spy at the British Academy Games Awards.

"I'm moving on to the next thing. I have my next idea ready, it's super cool. It's very different," he told Digital Spy. "I can tell you this — if I tell you the idea now, you'd say, 'I haven't played something like this before'. I can't tell you more. But definitely something that hasn't been done before."

The Starbreeze Studios-developed Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons allows players to control two brothers simultaneously as they embark on a quest to save their father. It launched on Xbox Live last August, followed by a release on PlayStation 3 and Windows PC via Steam Sept. 3.

Fares mentioned the new title won't be developed by Starbreeze and may be created by his own studio. "Yeah, I think that's what's going to happen. We'll see what happens... I can't talk too much about this!" he said.

Starbreeze Studios and Fares received three British Academy Games Awards nominations for Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and went on to win the Game Innovation category.

Update: Fares told Polygon that he had nothing further to share about the new project at this stage. He tweeted today that that he is thinking about starting his own game studio but "the decision is not made yet."
