Splash Damage's Next Game Hyped As 'Genre-Breaker,' Though No Game Details Revealed

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars didn't light the world on fire, but could developer Splash Damage really be onto something with their next project? Collaborator and publisher Bethesda Softworks seems to think so, hyping Splash Damage's still-unrevealed new game as a "first person shooter" that's a "genre breaker" in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz.

"That's a product that we believe is a genre-breaker, it's a real killer app," said Bethesda Europe managing director Sean Brennan. "From a quality perspective we're pitching that along the same lines as Fallout 3. We've kept it under lock and key, there are so many innovative features in there we don't want to reveal them too soon. We've spent significant resources developing the title."

Splash Damage was founded in 2001 by a group of Quake III: Arena modders. In the eight years since, the company has always worked within the confines of id Software's licenses, from Wolfenstein to Doom to Quake. Their collaboration with Bethesda looks to be Splash Damage's first attempt at a brand-new universe.

And here's hoping the Bethesda and Splash Damage collaboration won't only help Splash Damage's projects, but Bethesda's. The weakest part of Fallout 3, easily my favorite game released last year, were the shooting elements.
