We know of PlatinumGames as a Japanese game development company which commonly works just as other companies do. But the company has been thinking of expanding the business and to take it into new dimensions. The company is said to be working on a “shapeless, formless” new IP.
PlatinumGames instead of standing quietly in the row of those companies which have just developed games on the available IPs, wants to create one of its own and while expressing the same thought process, Inaba talked to GameInformer:
One of the things Platinum is focused on is we’re looking into creating our own IP, creating our own game. Up until now, obviousl, we’ve worked on original IPs for a wide variety of publishers. We’ve also worked on other Hollywood IPs for other publishers as well. But we’re becoming more and more interested in the idea of self-publishing and doing our own title. Doing something on our own, self-publishing it, releasing it, all of that is a challenge for us, but right now everybody is incredibly motivated and working on that. So all the fans, anybody who looks at the website or reads the magazine, look forward to something cool in the future from Platinum.
