New Belgium-based firm working on series reboot

Development veterans behind the original Outcast IP have opened a new console-focused studio in Belgium.

Called Daoka, the developer is formed from AMA Studios S.A., which has worked on titles such as Fighters Uncaged and My Personal Self Defense Coach, and Belgian outfit Appeal S.A., staffed by Outcast creators Yann Robert, Yves Grolet and Franck Sauer.

The studio said it has been working on its debut title for next-gen consoles, based on the Outcast IP recently acquired from Atari, for the last two years.

First released in 1999 for PC, Outcast was a sci-fi action adventure game developed by Appeal S.A., in which the world is under threat from a black hole.
