Earlier this summer, we caught wind of a brand-new project in the works between Microsoft and People Can Fly, thanks to a Polish business site that spotted the collaboration. While the Xbox owner hasn't officially confirmed the title since, a new job post from People Can Fly once again mentions the mystery project.
The collab is known as 'Project Maverick' at the time of writing, and a new job listing at developer People Can Fly calls it "A Triple-A game developed in collaboration with Microsoft". Here's a snippet from the post:
"Our creative teams are currently working on several exciting titles: Gemini is our new project being developed with Square Enix; Maverick is a Triple-A game developed in collaboration with Microsoft Corporation; Bifrost, Victoria and Dagger are projects we're growing in the self-publishing model.
Project Maverick is an unannounced AAA game developed with Microsoft. Game development is done by our European and North American teams."
We don't know much else about the title just yet, but the initial report from June 2023 did state that the project had been allocated somewhere between 30 to 50 million dollars in budget. Again, that number isn't confirmed, but Project Maverick does sound triple A in nature going off the few mentions of its existence so far.
People Can Fly is the team behind titles like Bulletstorm, Gears of War: Judgment and Outriders; which spent a good chunk of time on Xbox Game Pass - so it's safe to say the Polish team has history with Microsoft. We'll bring news on when Maverick is officially announced by Team Xbox!
