During the Xbox Bethesda Showcase, Phil Spencer unveiled for the first time Redfall, Arkane's new game (Dishonored, Prey, Deathloop) which will be exclusive to Xbox consoles.

While it will still be an FPS like the studio's previous games, this time the game will be open-world and promises an immersive experience playable both alone and with friends.
The title action takes place on the picturesque island of Redfall, Massachusetts, which is besieged by a legion of vampires who have blocked the sun and cut off the island from the outside world.

To face your enemies, you will be able to choose your hero from a diverse roster and build the perfect team of vampire slayers.
Unlike Deathloop which is scheduled for this end of the year on PS5 and PC, Redfall will be exclusive to Xbox consoles as announced by Phil Spencer.
Scheduled for 2022, the game will be available in Xbox Game Pass on PC and Xbox Series.

So MS decided to ruin Arkane, one of the top 3 best single player game devs at the time of acquisition.

Not surprising I guess, but utterly soul-crushing.

You think Deathloop and RedFall got greenlit after the MS purchase?

Arkane was struggling to stay afloat with Dishonored and Prey. You can't slowly drown and not try a different stroke.

Yeah same, I was expecting something with a much darker tone. This still has loads of potential, but it was for sure not what I expected

Many of these types of games lately are all starting to look the same and I mean that doesn't mean it'll be bad but I feel like I've seen this type of game so many times now. It's on Gamepass though so I will hold my full judgement till it comes out and I can give it a try because it may end up being amazing.

Prey 2, not a Life 4 Dead with vampires knockoff.

At least, I think that's what this is. That trailer told us very little despite being so long.

That’s what Arkane Austin is making instead of Prey 2?!?

Yeesh.

I mean Raphael Colantonio left the studio a long time ago and Prey was his baby. You can tell Arkane are going for more diverse settings since then, but this and Deathloop are very rooted in pop culture vs the Dishonored outputs and arx fatalis / dark messiah before that

Don't know what to think of it yet. Unfortunately Suicide Squad will be this ip's direct competition and there's an enormous chance that Rocksteady will kill it yet again so

I know I said I'm there for whatever Arkane do next but this really isn't what I wanted to see from them.

When I saw vampires I was hoping they got Vampire Masquerade but instead this looks like some 4 player co-op vampire shooter game.

I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and wait for more details because of who they are but if it's what I think it is then I'm out.

So it's just L4D with Vampires. Def killed the excitement. No gameplay footage as well.

Oh yeah. It was vampires. Close enough to a zombie shooter.

even with all that Microsoft money and the gamepass security net they chose to make a multiplayer shooter, even worse it looks like one of fifty new L4D clones that are in development. Arkane was probably my favourite western developer, this is super disappointing.

Looked pretty interesting, didn't get a lot of information from that trailer though.
Nice to see the console exclusives piling up.
