Project Athia’s release date is something of an enigma, much like the glimpse of the strange new fantasy world that was teased during Sony’s PlayStation 5 reveal event. What we know so far is that the working title is being developed by Luminous Productions, the Square Enix internal team responsible for the development of Final Fantasy XV - a title that to this date has sold over 9 million copies

Set in a world where giant wolves, dragons, and strange, colossal cyclop flora roam about, the story follows a caped girl (in cross trainers no less) as she traverses the landscape. Able to leap huge distances and summon roots from the Earth, we are sure to see more action-packed adventure as more information is revealed during the game’s development cycle.

Project Athia Release Date: When is it Coming Out?

The trailer shown by PlayStation did not give any information regarding a release date, nor timetable of when we could expect the game, but we do know that the title will be coming to both PlayStation 5 as well as PC.

So far we also know that writer Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Book of Eli) is leading the writing team for this title, creating a narrative and world which is sure to reflect the cinematic pedigree of his previous silver screen works. Sharing his reaction to the title reveal on Twitter, he has also worked on game narrative for Telltale’s The Walking Dead, Prey, and Gears of War.
