Arkane Lyon is making a game based on Marvel’s Blade franchise, the studio announced at The Game Awards 2023 on Thursday.

The game was revealed in a brief cinematic trailer, so we didn’t get any gameplay of the title or any details about when it might be released. But Arkane Lyon studio director Dinga Bakaba said that it would be an “immersive third-person action adventure,” so we can look forward to that. The trailer’s description also notes that it’s single-player and that it’s set in Paris. A press release notes that Arkane Lyon has “just begun” development, so we might be waiting a long time to see it.

Arkane Studios, which is one of many big developers under Microsoft’s increasingly-large empire, had a big stumble with the release of the poorly-received Redfall earlier this year. The studio has released some patches to fix up some issues with game (like adding a long-delayed performance mode for Xbox). Arkane Lyon is behind games like the Dishonored series and 2021’s Deathloop.
