Luminous Productions is behind the Athia project. It’s the same team that created Final Fantasy XV, the role-playing game released in 2016 and sold nearly 9 million copies.
Athia will be a PS5 exclusive. A short gameplay demo showed a woman fighting monsters and exploring intense places. Late on Twitter, writer Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Eli’s book) indicated that he was leading the writing team for this purpose. He worked on game narration for Telltale’s The Walking Dead, Prey and Gears of War.
Really proud to reveal that I led a crack team of top writers from the worlds of film, television, games and fantasy literature who helped create this huge new universe for @Square Enix. I can’t wait to see and learn more. Stay tuned. #ProjectAthia https://t.co/tR1ObQEjGE
