Arc System Works and Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro announce The Missing

"Frankly, this title will blow your mind."

The Missing

Arc System Works has announced The Missing, a new title directed by Deadly Premonition director Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro and developed by his White Owls studio. It will be released for console(s) in 2018.

Here is a message from Swery:

The title, “The Missing,” has many meanings. A missing person, someone who’s lost, or even something lost. Maybe it’s your loved one… or a place you belong. Do you ever feel lost in your everyday life? The Missing is for someone like you.

Congratulations, Arc System Works, on your North American branch. And hello, everyone! I’m Swery, director of The Missing. This is an exciting collaboration between Arc System Works and White Owls. It also marks White Owl’s first game developed in-house. That makes The Missing a thoroughbred project. Developed by my own team in my own studio. Arc System Works has given me an opportunity to create something entirely new. Of course, this comes with its fair share of challenges, but we’re tackling them one at a time. But I’m definitely enjoying my creative freedom. Arc System Works has been very supporting. And they let me pursue my vision.

We can’t reveal too much today, can we? OK, yeah… that’s what I thought. Frankly, this title will blow your mind. I think it’s sick. I’m confident it will exceed your expectations. So, please stay tuned.
