In the light of his twenty springs, everything seems to be smiling at the Mercury Steam studio. While their latest production is one of the potential “game of the year” at the Game Awards, the developers announce the rest of the menu.
While Metroid Dread continues to make the news, especially in the small world of speedrun, Mercury Steam announces that its next game for the time called Project Iron will be developed and published in partnership with 505 Games, as has just announced. an official press release. The publisher who recently took care of Control, the PC version of Death Stranding or Ghostrunner has just set his sights on a brand new game.
A reinforced concrete project?
The Spanish continue to multiply partners: after having self-published two of their productions, developed three parts of the Catslevania Lords of Shadows series on behalf of Konami and two episodes of Metroid under Nintendo’s leadership, the pundits of Mercury Steam have chosen to join forces with the Italian publisher 505 Games to offer Project Iron, presented as “a third-person action-RPG set in a dark fantasy universe”.
If for the time being it will be necessary to be satisfied with this brief pitch to imagine what the future will be like, the future editor of Project Iron specifies that he will still invest 27 million euros in development. The CEO of Digital Bros., the parent company of 505 Games, obviously welcomed this announcement:
We are delighted to be working with the team at MercurySteam, an established studio that over the years has created
many phenomenal licenses, including with the release of the recent Metroid Dread in partnership with Nintendo. With the creative vision of MercurySteam and the experience of 505 Games, gamers can expect an engaging game and high-end.
We will have to be patient to find out what Project Iron can offer us, even if the publisher is already talking about a multiplatform release. The bets are open, and the comments are entirely at your disposal to place your marbles.
