Devil’s Third developers Valhalla Games Studios posted new job listings searching for experienced game developers, specifically asking for those who are familiar with Unreal Engine. Since development on Devil’s Third has wrapped up, it seems like Valhalla Games is gearing up to start a new project.
It’s been nearly five years since Devil’s Third was announced. The game was originally going to be published by the late THQ (Darksiders, Darksiders II), but the project underwent a major development overhaul after having to switch from the Darksiders II engine to the Unreal 3 engine following THQ’s closure in 2013.
Nintendo plucked the title from its grave and agreed to publish it, but the title has hardly been mentioned by Nintendo of America other than showing the game during their digital event at E3 2014. Nintendo of Japan will release the game on August 4. A European release is slated for August 28.
Valhalla Games Studios was founded by Tomonobu Itagaki, who left Tecmo in 2008. The studio was staffed with former members of Team Ninja who followed in Itagaki’s footsteps in 2009.
