Don’t Nod has revealed they are developing a brand new large-scale action RPG known internally as Project 12. The self-published game seems to be in the early stages of development as the developer revealed it will not be released until 2025 at the earliest.
What we know about Don’t Nod Project 12
Few other details about Project 12 were revealed, although it will be a larger-scale game that is “richer in terms of game mechanics and allowing players to immerse themselves in even more-engaging stories.” Project 12 was mentioned separately to the Vampyr IP, so is not believed to be a sequel to that game, nor is it the game being co-developed with Tiny Bull Studios. The good news is that Don’t Nod has increased the amount of money available to develop its action RPG thanks to a $35 million investment from Tencent, and this will allow the team to “step up in terms of production value.”
Project 12 is one of eight games in progress at the studio. Both Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden and the newly-revealed Harmony: The Fall of Reverie will be released in 2023. Between this year and 2025, the company also intends to release four original games as well as the two games they are co-producing with Tiny Bull studios and Studio Tolima. Project 12 is planned for “beyond 2025”.
