Gamespot reports that Yager Development, the studio behind Spec Ops: The Line, are teasing their next project - and it would seem they are looking to break away from the genre they previously worked on.

Timo Ullmann, managing director, told GameSpot:

"After five years of working on Spec Ops, maybe it's time to do something different so you don't get trapped in that box where we're just making military shooters. We still have to be commercial--we learned that the hard way--but by being independent we can live creatively and never be labelled or framed as being about a certain thing."

"We've never had more platforms and more business models, so it's a good time for new IP. After a seven-year console lifecycle, people are longing for something new--gamers and publishers, actually--and that suits us fine."

We already know that whatever Yager is working on, they are making use of Epic Games' Unreal 4 Engine. Recent job posting imply that the game may feature micro transactions and cross platform play. They are also looking for people with experience in the strategy and RPG fields.

REVIEW. Written by Rasmus Lund-Hansen

"One feels that the choice of genre and setting was chosen because it was how they could best support the story and not vice versa."
