It’s safe to assume that a major portion of our gaming population has played Project IGI as kids. A tactical FPS originally released back in 2000, it is a game that we still remember quite fondly. Soon, those days may be back, as another Project IGI title seems to be in development.
The news was revealed by a Norwegian site known as Pressfire. The article has been translated using Google Translate, but states it as “a kind of comeback for the Norwegian classic from 2000, Project IGI”. The game is being developed by Artplant, founded by the members of the original Project IGI team, Innerloop Studios.
Jack K. Wulff from Artplant confirmed that they were indeed working on a new IGI title, but said, “We don’t have much to announce at this point, other than that the game will be called IGI – We’re Going In.” Could this mean that the game will have co-op multiplayer? No release date or any other details have been revealed yet, but it’s great to see an old childhood memory resurrect after such a long time.
Previously, Artplant had teased that David Jones, the protagonist from the first two games may return for another mission. Stay tuned for more updates.
Potentially this could become factual, yes.
