The team currently closing up on development for Wasteland 3, InXile Entertainment will be primarily occupied on the third entry for the series until this coming August. However, there is more that is being worked on at the California-based team. It was reported back in October through a posted job listing at the Xbox Game Studios developer that a new project is currently underway.

What is more interesting is that the listing in particular stresses the focus for next-generation hardware. The posting insinuates that InXile Entertainment would be focusing on utilizing the newer hardware of the then-dubbed Project Scarlett alongside PC as expected. Butthat paper trial briefly ended following the discovery.

Now in a new reveal that surfaced more recently, InXile Entertainment clarifies that this new project will be adopting the approaching Unreal Engine 5. Brian Fargo – InXile Entertainment studio head shares the details on Twitter this week.

Even more, the studio’s official Twitter account confirms that the 2021-scheduled engine will be implemented for its new game. Fargo in his respected post does share that whatever this new project will be is in fact an RPG. This detail is more of a given taken from the repertoire that trails behind the development team. Howbeit, again this is the end of the story for now on the unnamed title.

Given that we now have confirmation on the medium that will be used for the new project, we do have somewhat of an understanding on the game’s release. Essentially, players can anticipate for the game to ship later on following the release of Unreal Engine 5 in 2021. However, it cannot be determined if the property will be out next year or even later than that.

In other Unreal Engine 5-related news, in a new report it was told that the engine actually perform better on current generation laptops over the advertised PlayStation 5. Despite Epic Games’ CEO stating that the SSD for the new console is more powerful than high-end PCs, the demonstration holds a higher frame rate on more moderate systems.
