Sega Europe is teaming up with a new studio headed by Gary Carr and Mark Webley, who you might recognize for their work on games like Black & White, Theme Park, and Fable. Sega's European branch will be working with the duo's Two Point Studios to create an entirely new IP that will modernize the soul of what made the franchises they worked on great.
The game, currently unnamed, but in development, impressed Sega. John Clark, the senior VP of commercial publishing at Sega Europe, stated that, "We've been talking to Two Point Studios for a long time and are really impressed with their vision. We're delighted to announce our partnership and look forward to revealing more about the project early next year." Likewise, Sega dazzled the indie studio with Webley explaining that, "Sega Europe have really impressed us with their approach to working with creative teams, their reputation as a PC publisher and their commitment to quality - they are an ideal partner for us."
While not much is currently known about the unannounced title, Carr and Webley's team at Two Point Studios consists mainly of ex-Bullfrog and ex-Lionhead developers. Gary Carr did drop a hint at what type of game might be in the works, saying, "We are really excited to be working with Sega and between us we feel confident that we can create something special, and realise our vision of crafting a beautiful, charming and challenging sim game." Challenging sim game, huh? That statement, along with the personnel involved, points us toward what the experienced team at Two Point might be making. Black & White: Theme Park, anyone? Become a god of life or death, lording over a digital theme par- wait, no, that's what people already do in theme park games.
Whatever this unannounced game winds up becoming, we will have more details about it in early 2018.
