Fumito Ueda gearing up development on new game

Hopefully we don't have to wait that long.

Fumito Ueda and his team at GenDesign/Team Ico have created some of the best games out there in the form of Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, and depending on who you ask, The Last Guardian. His latest game may have taken nearly a decade to release but that wasn't enough to make him feel burnt out.

GenDesign and Ueda are gearing up to go into development on their next game and have begun hiring for whatever the mysterious unknown title is. Ueda has teased that he'd like to return to the open world-like formula of Shadow of the Colossus, so maybe we'll see something of that nature but it's too soon to tell. Ueda did say over the summer that he would like to release the game as soon as possible and is hoping that his approach and the tools at his disposal allow for that to happen.

You can view the recruitment post below.

Shadow of the Colossus is getting a remake/remaster-type thing next year but Ueda doesn't have any actual involvement in the game outside of making some requests for the developer.
