We Happy Few dev Compulsion Games working on third-person single player game

An employee from Compulsion Games has revealed that the We Happy Few developer is working on a single-player, third-person narrative game


Compulsion Games’ head of press relations, Naila Hadjas, recently spoke with Xbox Squad about the studio’s recent expansion, what the future holds for the developer, and the unannounced title the team is working on (thanks, VGC). During the interview, Hadjas discussed Compulsion’s current vision for its future, saying (translated from French), “The goal is to expand our zany universe, to continue to make our mark in video games as a studio that likes to make unique games, in little-used settings. For now, that’s our goal. Pursue our ‘legacy’, our heritage, while remaining true to ourselves.”

“With our new game, a narrative, third person, story game, I don’t think we need any feedback,” says Hadjas. “It’s not like a rogue-like where you replay it multiple times and you need data to make sure the experience is fun.” It sounds like the next adventure in the We Happy Few universe is going to focus on the story and uncovering the series’ characters.

There isn’t currently a release date in sight, or even any official announcements, but you can be sure that we’ll let you know when we have something. Are you interested in playing a narrative-driven title from Compulsion Games? Let us know in the comments!
