The lights are on
Looks like the developer behind Resistance and Overstrike has another project under its EA Partners deal.
An Internet sleuth on NeoGAF discovered the studio recently trademarked "Outernauts" and also purchased the domain names Outernauts-Game.com and Outernauts-Game.net, etc.
Additionally, a website for EA Partners was discovered called "EAP Marketing FY13 Home Page" apparently created by Phil Marineau, director of marketing at EA. The website, which has since been edited, listed the following EA Partners projects:
The Secret World is being developed by Funcom while Insomniac Games is currently working on Overstrike and Outernauts. Respawn is of course developing its unannounced project. The last game on the list is a new, unannounced Populous game, which as NeoGAF points out, could be a Facebook/iOS title instead of a console release.
In March last year, Insomniac started a new division within the company called Insomniac Click to focus on mobile and social games. Outernauts could be for those platforms.
We've contacted both EA and Insomniac for additional details. We'll update this story when we hear back.
Interesting... Didn't Insomniac state awhile back that they wanted to try their hand at Facebook games? That could be Outernauts. Or perhaps it's a new IP from their second studio, who knows?
That icon reminds me of psychonauts...
Lets just hope EA doesent acquire them
Hmmm, sounds like Psychonauts.
I thought of a Psychonauts sequel but then I remembered Double Fine made that, not Insomniac.
i don't see why there aren't any diablo, or gauntlet style facebook games.
(Crosses fingers and jumps up and down like a little girl) New IP! New IP! New IP!...
I want a new ratchet and clank game not all for one but a real one
Cool, I don't think it has anything to do with Psychonauts? And seeing Respawn again makes me curious as to what they have under their sleeves; haven't heard from them in a long while
What is Overstrike?
Whatever it will be, Insomniac makes some damn great games. To be honest, Ratchet and Clank is probably their best IP created.
I know this is like that this is like wishing for world peace but... spyro just ONE more time.
