Two Tribes have confirmed that their upcoming 2D platformer/shooter RIVE
, which had previously been in development for PC and unnamed consoles, will be released for the Xbox One next year. The publisher will be working closely with a porting partner to bring this game to new-generation consoles, which is to be their first new title since Toki Tori 2
- a game which threatened to destroy the studio at the beginning of the year due to development delays.
Fortunately the studio evolved and survived, but with a much smaller workforce. RIVE
is affectionately described as a "metal wrecking, robot hacking shooter", in which players can alter the behavior of enemies by collecting and uploading hacks. It is currently slated for an early 2015 release. Hopefully this new game can provide some fortune to Two Tribes.
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the RIVE achievements.
