Former PlayStation Developer Keiichiro Toyama, who just so happened to create Siren and a little game called Quiet hill, has announced that his new project will be a Horror Action-Adventure game, destined for a 2023 release. Toyama broke the news to IGN Japan, which in turn forwarded details to the North American branch.
Toyama’s Bokeh Game Studio was founded on August 13 and spoke to IGN Japan that the upcoming title “will appeal to fans of my previous work”. Toyama explained that the game will include “battles and story elements” in the kind of immersive worlds reminiscent of his previous work with Konami. “If anything, this will be more of a horror-oriented game. But we will focus on making this a broader entertainment experience rather than a hardcore horror game. ”
Despite being a first-rate Sony developer for the past two decades, Toyama said his new project will be a multi-platform release. “We’re evolving with the PC as the leading platform, but we hope to release the game on as many console platforms as possible.”
As you might guess, the project is still in its early stages, but Toyama has put together a “pretty big” team to develop the game. “We are just entering the development of a prototype, and development will probably take almost three years. So we hope to get this game in your hands in about three years from now. ”
That said, Bokeh co-founder and producer was Kazunobu Sato (who also worked with Siren) and business development manager Yohei Hart said the studio newly launched Twitter account and Facebook account shows glimpses of progress as the studio continues to develop the title.
