While the return of Alan Wake on steam currently takes all the spotlight, something far more interesting is happening in the background. Quite silently, Remedy announced on their website a press release it has finished the majority of work on the single-player campaign of CrossFire 2. CrossFire is an extremely popular first-person and multiplayer game in Korea, developed and published by Smilegate Entertainment. Smilegate teamed up with the Finnish game studio in order to develop and deliver gamers a single-player campaign as well, all set according to Remedy’s high standards cinematic and character driven gameplay.
Remedy has recently hinted in their financial rapport it had slowly started production on a new game project. Today it was announced that, now the majority of work is done, Smilegate re-newed their partnership with Remedy for a new CrossFire game project. The development team previously occupied with CrossFire, moved over to the new production. Development time for the new CrossFire project estimated to last approximately two years.
“It’s been exciting to get to know the vast world of CROSSFIRE and use our storytelling skills to create new CROSSFIRE single-player experiences. The quality of the story mode we’ve developed, the excellent working relationship with Smilegate, and the high motivation of our CROSSFIRE development team make us really happy to continue our strong partnership”, says Tero Virtala, CEO of Remedy Entertainment.
