Gary Whitta will lead the writing team for Square Enix’s Project Athia. The Rogue One and Book of Eli scribe announced on Twitter that he was leading “a crack team of A-list writers” for the new game, which was announced at the PlayStation 5 reveal event last week.

Project Athia was one of the many new IP reveals to come from the PlayStation 5 Future of Gaming event. Developed by Luminous Productions (a new Square Enix Studio) the game, only known by its working title, combines modern artistic tastes with high fantasy and sees the player utilising elemental attacks to dispatch enemies.

Described as as a “thrilling, story-led, action adventure” by Square Enix on Twitter, Project Athia has been announced for release on PlayStation 5 and PC. No release date was given.
