“It’s not simply a remaster. It’s being built from the ground up. We get to do all the content from scratch, fresh and ready to go,“ said creative director Chris Auty. He added, “We’re very early in production. We’re still prototyping. We don’t want to rush anything. We want to make sure that we absolutely nail the game, we actually do everything in the right way, and produce an absolutely stellar-quality experience.
“And we will be going dark for a little while, so we can focus on making the absolute best game possible.” Zavian Porter, associate level design director, also injects, “Yeah, we’re aiming to create this top-tier remake and push quality as much as possible. This should help us set a good foundation for the franchise going forward.”
