Platinumgames is one of the most beloved studies of the moment. Only in 2022 will we will see the launch of _ Bayonetta 3 _ and sol cresta, two experiences that will surely be liked from all Hideki Kamiya fans. However, Atsushi Inaba, co-founder this company and who was recently named CEO, has pointed out that intends to give rise to projects that are different and can be played for a long period of time.
In an interview with Famitsu, Inaba was questioned about the state of _project G.G., _ One of the works in which Kamiya is involved. Instead of talking about the game that is very close, the CEO shared the vision of it for the future of the company, one where he sees a greater approach in experiences that one would not immediately associate with Platinumgames . This was what he mentioned:
"PROJECT G.G. It is still in the stage of trying several things, so I can not tell you much about it, but when it comes to future production of games, we want to focus on creating games that are different from those of the past. I would like to focus on creating games that can be enjoyed and love for more time.
Of course, we would like to appreciate and create small but brightly conceived games, like sun crest, and games in which you can enjoy the process of completing the game going through unique and well-designed stages, such as Bayonetta.
However, the projects that we are trying to create for the future will be different in terms of its structure. Taking into account changes in the market over the next five years, I think it is absolutely necessary for us to do this. I'm sorry for being so vague, but I think that's all I can say at this time.
I want to take Platinumgames in a pure and unadulterated direction, and never look back. I think that is my role now. "
Although at the moment there are no details about what this means for PlatinumGames, would not be surprising to see in the future some title with game elements as a service . Not only the Tokyo Division of the Study was created to facilitate its desire to expand to "live operations" games, but are currently working on Babylon's Fall with Square Enix, which has MMO elements.
However, Inaba points out that the classic experiences of the series will not be forgotten . On related topics, PlatinumGames wants to carry Star Fox Zero Al Switch. Similarly, the company has spoken about bayonetta 3.
While it is certain that Platinumgames has the potential to give us great experiences regardless of the genre in which they are working, there is an uncertainty at the time of speaking of games as a service, or more longevas experiences, since the study knows how to make great titles focused on A single adventure
