Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Rockstar Toronto Developing Next-Gen Open World Game

Posted on Tuesday, July 9 @ 10:32:23 Eastern by Keri_Honea


Many who watching today's gameplay trailer for Grand Theft Auto V have come away from it with mixed feelings as many are disappointed that this game will be current-gen instead of next. While it's possible that Rockstar will port the game to the next-gen consoles eventually, it seems that their other studios are already working hard on open world games for the next generation.

Last year, Rockstar San Diego had a job posting for developers for an open-world project, suggesting that it could be another Red Dead game. Now it seems that Rockstar Toronto is also working on an open world game for the next-gen.

Rockstar Toronto has only collaborated on game projects in the past, but the studio merged with Rockstar Vancouver last year, the studio that created Max Payne 3. MP3 may have been a linear experience, but the job listing that PlayStation LifeStyle found asked for experience with "large open-world environments." Another listing with the same studio for an environment artist says that the position includes working with next-gen consoles.

On LinkedIn, a popular networking site for outing such unannounced games, has one developer at Rockstar Toronto claiming to be working on an untitled projects with numerous open-world features:

Designed and implemented populations with behaviors.
Worked with programmers to update tools for development needs.
Maintained scripts to only execute procedures when mission conditions were met.
Designed and requested art assets for populated areas for interaction and immersion.

Another Rockstar Toronto developer also mentions on LinkedIn that he is working on an untitled project for multiple platforms.

What do you think this could be? An open-world Max Payne? A brand new open-world IP? What would you prefer to see?
