Mysterious Black Troll working on PS3 exclusive?

Forums - Sony Discussion - Mysterious Black Troll working on PS3 exclusive?

With all the depressing news about studio closures and cut-backs, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the industry is on a downward slide. It seems that EA are keen to keep rolling the development ball uphill, however.

According to some more clever detective work over on SystemLink, there’s a new studio in operation and they’re working on a new PS3 exclusive.

The suspicions were first raised with an anonymous (for now) employee’s résumé citing his work as a UI Artist contracted to a studio called Black Troll. The entry on the unnamed source’s employment history states that he has been working on an FPS for the PS3 since September 2010. Usually, if a project is multiplatform, a résumé will show that in order to demonstrate cross-platform ability.

Black Troll Studios would seem not to exist, at least until a few days ago when their website went live with nothing but a pretty shade of dark red to look at.

It would all be very vague and we would encourage plenty of skepticism if it wasn’t for the fact that BlackTrollStudios.com domain was registered by Electronic Arts back in November 2010.

“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

I'd love it if they're remaking Black.



okay can we just stop this whole figuring out what games are coming years before they are revealed and might potentially come out, the amount of waiting time is just ridicules and things often disappoint

you know, the best way to letting a thread die is not to comment in it...

This isn't just about the thread though, we know about games way before we should because of all these rumor things, we know the name of a game and what system it's going to be on years before the game has anything to show

Perhaps if they're under the EA Partners program.
