Update: Developer Housemarque has given out a couple more details about its newly announced Stormdivers title. In an email the company says,

Our newest title will still remain in a slight shroud of mystery, but we can say that it will be a high-flying and heavy hitting, multiplayer-centric experience. It will be the first title that we treat as an on-going service, this also means that there are ways to get to play it earlier and we'd love to develop it further with a feedback loop in mind.


Original Story

A few months ago, Housemarque announced it was leaving the old-school arcade shooters behind it made its name on behind due to poor sales. Today the company has announced the first game of its post-arcade shooter era: Stormdivers.

The teaser trailer below doesn't show the game in action, unfortunately. We get glimpses of a forested area populated by human encampments with a hint of futuristic tech (look at that crate!), a bolt of thunder, and fireballs seemingly pushing back against heavy winds.

Housemarque describes Stormdivers as a "High flying and heavy hitting multiplayer centric experience." Will it be a third-person shooter? Fighting game? Battle Royale? For now we can only guess. No platform or release date was announced.
