The mysterious Square Enix game Project Athia will be a PS5 console exclusive for at least two years, a new trailer has revealed.
A ‘New and Upcoming Games’ trailer was posted to the official PlayStation YouTube account, which shows footage from PS5’s 2021 lineup, including games like Deathloop, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Horizon: Forbidden West. Project Athia appears briefly, and a tag underneath the footage gives us some more details about the game’s Sony exclusivity deal.
Project Athia will also be available on PC, but it won’t be available on other consoles like the Xbox family of devices for “at least 24 months after release date.” This means intrigued Xbox fans will have to wait for at least two years to play the game outside of the PlayStation 5 or PC ecosystem.
Back in September, Project Athia developer Luminous Productions gave a showcase of the tech powering the game, known as the Luminous Engine. You can check out the ‘World Editor’ video here, which provides a glimpse at some lush procedural environments. Beyond that, we know very little about the game, aside from the fact that it is being written by Rogue One’s Gary Whitta and “a crack team of A-list writers.”
In less welcome PlayStation 5 news, UK gangs have been stealing PS5s from the back of delivery trucks while they’re driving.
