We know how Microsoft has hoarded independent studios in recent years, all in order to increase the production of titles for Xbox and PC: among the various big names, such as Bethesda and Ninja Theory. Even minor studies, which perhaps seemed perhaps more similar to PlayStation, ended up later under the green wing by Phil Spencer: one of these was Compulsion Games, studio author of Contrast and We Happy Few, with the debut of the latter initially first on Xbox One. Since the title was released, no news has arisen regarding their upcoming project; yet, recent news seems to indicate that something is actually there boiling in the pot for some time.

During an interview with the Xbox Squad newspaper, it was learned that the Canadian team, after releasing We Happy Few, has doubled the number of developers. Compulsion Games now aims to create “Unique games in little used environments“; in addition, during the interview with developer Naila Hadjas, the new title is also introduced, a narrative and third-person game, which apparently is in full development and started production in 2019.
