    It won't be a remake, Activison still owns the original.

    In addition to that, this thing allegedly has text-only quests. They wouldn't "downgrade" a remake like that.

    I doubt it's a remake.

    It would be pretty weird to introduce Tender, dating apps and the 5th Edition only to have a game that predates all those things.

    Text only quests? You mean the ARG or what? We are pretty sure the ARG is only teasing for the real thing...

    Sadly, there's probably more effort put in the ARG than on whatever will be announced at last. :M

    Ha, if this Tender thingy is just ARG, I at least hope that it will turn out better than that shit and that its author(s) at least won't be another "male feminist" abuser.

    They've been "retweeting" the Paradox Interactive account for a while: https://twitter.com/hardsuitlabs

    There are some interesting if revealing bits here and there in their job openings like:

    Text-based quests. As in PoE1's Caed Nua quests? I never actually read them, it felt ...too much. Or perhaps CYOA segments?

    I mean, don't most RPGs have text-only quests? Makes more sense the more modern the setting is, too, what with all the remote contacts.

    You did get some purely by email, but it wasn't that many. I suppose if they aren't abstracting, these text-only quests will come in the form of people texting you and your character texting back and such.

    You had to make some ghoul bitch fuck off by talking to her. It was dialogue only quest.

    Context people.

    In addition to texting, I suppose there could be some sort of vampire Craigslist.

    Wut? You got quests by email. But then they always had an interactive part.
    I assume you mean the hacking quests... that you had to infilitrate in warehouses/the theatre/the corporation.

    You could even straight kill her, it would have the same outcome.

    The poster collection was also all done without voice over. While the restaurant critic quest was received by email, you do end up having to talk to a guy with voice over so I suppose that doesn't count. The werewolf blood quest almost counts, except I think the patrolling guard does have unique dialogue.

    So, what do I got: Hardsuit Labs, a 70-plus employees Seattle-based game studio, developers of Blacklight: Retribution (a free-to-play FPS), is working on... something. If the details found in the job openings are anything to go by, unlike Blacklight, their next game is single-player. Also, it is developed in Unreal Engine 4. They have been silent on what's next for the studio, but accordingly to this tweet (from january 17, and funnily enough the Tender ARG begun two days later), there's "more coming soon" from them... Back in january 2018, Paradox acquired 33% of the studio, and Hardsuit Labs has since been "working on an as-yet unannounced title, to be published by Paradox Interactive in the future".

    (I assume most of these informations aren't news to some of you, but still.)
