Jakub Behn, Magdalena Furman and Pavel Kuleta, former developers of CD Projekt RED and known for their roles in The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077, have announced the founding of a new game studio. They are already working on their debut title in feudal Japan, where online mechanics and a deep plot about ninjas appear as the basis of the project.
Called Dark Passenger, the Polish developer is releasing a game with many customization options. His proposal has a co-op system and PvP and PvE features – all in an ambitious world designed for next-generation consoles and PCs.
Without an official name, the creation of the former Cyberpunk 2077 developers will take players to a fictional Japan where the Shogun has been mysteriously killed. As a mercenary, the main character must go on an intense journey in search of the tormentor, meeting the usurper’s assistants and other hunters who share the same goal.
According to Dark Passenger, the title will have multiple customization alternatives and will allow for a choice of ninja or kunoichi. In addition, the game will feature a variety of mechanics – running with arrows, climbing walls, jumping over obstacles and more – along with various weapons such as katana, wakizashi, kusarigama, kunai and more.
With a Ghost of Tsushima atmosphere, the project aims to explore the original history of the feudal era, creating a fast-paced and realistic experience. Participants in the online experience will also be able to create their own dojo to interact with other players and develop a base of sorts for training and evolution.
