Fortnite creator Epic Games has announced it’ll publish two new games from indie studios Eyes Out and Spry Fox.
As per the announcement, the first of these studios—Eyes Out—is founded by Cory Davies, who was the designer and director of Spec Ops: The Line. Joining him is Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck. Their game doesn’t have a name yet, but will be a “multiplatform cosmic horror game” that uses the Unreal Engine.
Spry Fox meanwhile is the developer behind word puzzle game Alphabear and Road Not Taken. More recently, the studio released life-sim Cozy Grove on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC. Their new title, which also doesn’t have a name yet, is said to be its “most ambitious to date”.
What we do know is that it’ll be a “multiplatform, non-violent, persistent multiplayer game” that’s said to “encourage friendship and reduce loneliness in the world”. To that end, it’ll also support crossplay and cross-progression, and will also use the Unreal Engine.
There’s no ETA for either Eyes Out or Spry Fox’s games yet, but they’ll both come under the Epic Games Publishing banner. That’s the same label that worked with Remedy to launch Alan Wake: Remastered earlier this month. Hopefully, we’ll find out more on either project, including a name, in the not-too-distant future.
