District 9 director working on battle royale game for 2023

Gunzilla Games has announced Off The Grid, its upcoming AAA battle royale third-person shooter, which is set to launch for new-gen consoles next year in 2023.

Off The Grid already has a teaser trailer ahead of its launch for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC in 2023:

"Set within a dystopian future, the cyberpunk styled shooter plans to evolve the genre through strong emphasis on narrative progression," Gunzilla Games says. "A Battle Royale like no other, in OTG, 150 players fight each other in PvP skirmishes, as well as PvE storyline missions using the same map inhabited by other players in real time. Players have the freedom to control how the hard-boiled story unfolds, with each decision made directly impacting everyone’s gameplay. Core to the experience and deep narrative structure is the unique way in which players can craft, customize, and trade their in-game items with each other. In OTG, the lines between hero and villain become blurred as players fight to survive the covert corporate battles of the future."

Chief visionary officer Neill Blomkamp also provided a statement on Off The Grid, saying, "With OTG, our ambition is not only to create the Battle Royale 2.0 by adding deep player progression, but to build an evolving world designed to take on a life of its own, changing in unexpected ways each time a player rejoins the game. With an innovative approach to the Battle Royale core session flow and a deep narrative experience, we add purpose to each element of the game, allowing players to revisit the OTG world repeatedly where there is always something new to find and explore, and for us to expand upon.” 

Off The Grid is currently set to launch for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC in 2023. What do you think of what we've seen so far? Let us know in the comments!
