MercurySteam has partnered with Digital Bros., the parent company of video game publisher 505 Games, to produce their next game. An original IP called Project Iron, it will be “a third-person action role-playing game set in a dark fantasy world.” Project Iron is to be released on multiple platforms and has a budget of €27 million, or about $30.7 million USD. The IP is co-owned by Digital Bros. and MercurySteam.
In a statement, Digital Bros. said: “We are thrilled to work with the team at MercurySteam, a proven studio that over the years has created numerous phenomenal IPs – including the recent hit release Metroid Dread in partnership with Nintendo. With MercurySteam’s creative vision and talent and 505 Games extensive experience, gamers can expect a high-quality, captivating and engaging videogame.”
MercurySteam brought us Metroid Dread last month, and Metroid: Samus Returns before that, and they were both fantastic entries in the Metroid series. With their passion, dedication and skill, I think Project Iron will be a great success. Best of luck to MercurySteam on their new game!
