It's unclear what this game will be, it could be a top-down adventure, third-person title, or even a first-person experience. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. Epic Games recently stunned everyone by Unreal Engine 5, so it's quite a powerful set of tools. Whatever the game may be, it should look amazing given what inXile is working with.

Microsoft now has a massive development crew for XGS in a very short time since they acquired Studios. The Initiative alone has an amazing variety of highly skilled talent. Something PlayStation Developers seem to notice before swapping over to it.
I'm telling you by half way through next Gen, MS will be thr number 1 known studio for First Party RPGs. They are literally set up as the most diverse set of devs in the industry. FPS, TPS, Cinematic, RTS, Arcade Racer, Sim Racer and RPG all accounted for in their studio portfolio. And damn good IPS to.
