Focus Home Interactive’s boss Cdric Lagarrigue believes that sci-fi games will flood the market over the next two to three years.
His prediction comes ahead of the launch of his new game The Technomancer. It also follows the announcement of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which is set in space, and will go head-to-head with another sci-fi shooter, EA’s Titanfall 2.
After presenting many fantasy titles during the past years, we’ve decided to invade the sci-fi universe, as there’s an empty space to fill there,” Lagarrigue explained.
With Battlefleet Gothic, The Technomancer, The Surge or Space Hulk, we’re filling this empty space perfectly. But it’s possible that the next game of [The Technomancer developer] Spiders Studio will be set on Earth, as we anticipate that the sci-fi genre will be a little saturated in two to three years.”
The French publisher is launching The Technomancer in the UK on June 21st, via a new partnership with Maximum Games.
