Housemarque's CEO response to alleged concept art pictures

February 15, 2013

Housemarque's CEO Ilari Kuittinen released today an official comment regarding the alleged Dead Nation 2, The Walking Dead and Superman artworks discussed in our recent statement:

"Playing around with concepts and settings is standard practice among most developers, and as veterans of the industry will be able to confirm, by the end of the process only a few of them turn into real products. Since the beginning of 2012 we have been silently working on three unannounced projects. These games are now at various stages of completion and are planned for release on several platforms.

All our 40+ developers are hard at work to make sure the quality of gameplay, music, sound design and art will grant them a spot right next to Dead Nation, Outland and the Stardust series.

I'd personally like to reassure fans and press both that no Housemarque title has been cancelled in years. Any speculation on the nature of our new titles is a wild guess at best. We are aware that we haven't given away much thus far, but there will soon be a time and place for official announcements revealing what we have in store for daring gamers."
