The newly founded studio, Rocket Boy is said to be working on a brand new project called Everywhere. Leslie Benzies is taking the reins on Everywhere after he founded Rocket Boy, he has hired 130 people to work on the project.
The newly hired staff consist of former GTA developers, cinematic animators, music directors, programmers and audio directors along with confirming funding from Netease.
For those wondering what Everywhere will actually entail, Benzies had this to say “Everywhere has a lot of traditional game mechanics but we’re going for something more that draws inspiration from, well, everywhere. Players are getting smarter and require more from their games, and we want players to have the real freedom to live in our worlds in the ways they want to. We’re aiming to offer a huge variety of game modes and styles that not only tell our stories but also enable players to live in the identities and adventures they most want to explore.”
So, we know so far that the title will be an open-world multiplayer title, the gams description reads “In the near future, technology has brought humanity to the precipice of a world shifting change.There are those who want to use this technology to advantage only themselves, and those who want to use it to help all humankind. Will we look to the stars? Or stare only at our feet? Will we be inspired? Or live in fear?”
“There’s a war between good and evil in the hearts of men and women. Everything is changing. And there’s no going back. It’s a game. It’s a community. It’s a new world. The storm is on the horizon. And it is only the beginning of EVERYWHERE.”
