Mercury Steam working on new next-gen project

New game "completely different" from Castlevania, producer says.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow developer Mercury Steam is working on a new project for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, the developer revealed.

The new game is “completely different” from Castlevania, according to producer David Cox. A number of ideas that never made it into the upcoming sequel Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 might come to fruition in their new game, Cox said.

Further details were not shared, but Cox confirmed the game would not be coming to Wii U.

In a 2012 interview, Cox said that Mercury Steam had some “really cool ideas” in the works, and that “it’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Contra and I’d like to do something in that universe.”
