Lords of the Fallen 2 gets a new developer and moves to next-gen
New studio formed to take on the RPG sequel
CI Games has announced the formation of Hexworks, a new game development studio that is to be based in Barcelona and Bucharest. Collectively, the team will be working on Lords of the Fallen 2.
Creative Director Cezar Virtosu and Executive Producer Saul Gascon lead a Hexworks team of around 25 people including veteran staff with AAA game development experience.
Lords of the Fallen 2 promises a shift from the original’s power fantasy to a dark fantasy. The sequel will also be much more loyal to the challenging combat experience that the Soulsborne and Souls-like communities enjoy. The game was first announced years ago, and has switched developers multiple times.
Lords of the Fallen 2 is also switching from current-gen, to a next-gen release.
