As for now, the developers have released no valuable information regarding this upcoming multiplayer game. Based on their recent blog, it is safe to assume that it will exclusively release for the new-gen PS5.

Firewalk Studios’ goal is to develop new worlds that contain some of the best gaming moments for the players. PlayStation is the perfect companion, as Sony has the best expertise and is capable enough to make the studio’s dreams come true.

The game has already passed certain important stages of development. In fact, the developers themselves have been playing it consistently and love it. As per Tony Hsu, the Studio Head at Firewalk, the daily online playtests were a major source of entertainment for the team in 2020 when the world was hit with the Coronavirus pandemic.

Even though the announcement is just about the ongoing project, it was enough to generate curiosity among fans. As for now, some are assuming that this upcoming title will be a MMORPG shooter, while others think it can very well be a Battle Royale title.
