Blizzard’s New Survival Game Could Be Called “Odyssey”, Has “Cartoony” Graphics

Blizzard’s unannounced survival game is apparently called Odyssey, and will sport “cartoony”, Overwatch-inspired graphics. That’s at least according to Windows Centrals’ Jez Corden, who shared what he knows about the project on his podcast.

On The Xbox Two podcast, Corden gives us some more information on the survival game that was inadvertently revealed in a job listing the other day. Here, Corden says that it might be an Xbox console exclusive, although he doesn’t know for sure just yet. He also suspects it will run well on the Xbox Series S, saying that it doesn’t look like a graphically advanced game, opting for a stylised appearance rather than something hyper-realistic.

Speaking on the podcast, Corden says he’s “90 percent sure” that the devs will be sticking with the name Odyssey for their new game (as spotted by r/GamingLeaksAndRumours)

He also says that the graphics he saw were “cartoony”, “Overwatchy”, and almost like something from a fairytale. This aligns with his feeling that it will run well on the Series S and be well-optimised.

As for the platform availability, Corden says that it’s “so close to being complete” that it would be odd for it to go Xbox exclusive now. But on the other hand, he admits this isn’t set in stone, and it would make sense for Microsoft to want to see a return on its huge investment in Activision Blizzard. It would also be a less controversial exclusive than the likes of Call of Duty and Diablo, which already have huge, dedicated player bases.

Right now, much of this new project is unknown. We only found out about it earlier this week, when a job listing at Activision Blizzard mentioned an “unannounced survival game”.

“We have a new AAA survival game in the works, set in a new IP for PC/Console,” reads the description in the listing. “It’s going to be amazing, and we are excited to bring you along for the ride. Together, we’ll build something big, bold, and beautiful. It is a world different from any other Blizzard has created”

We’re still waiting on the official announcement, but judging from what Corden has shared with us now, it seems like this might not be very far off. Indeed, there was enough for Corden to make assumptions about how it would run on certain platforms, so it seems that the game is pretty deep in development.

Still, as we saw with Overwatch, Blizzard certainly isn’t afraid to scrap everything and start over again if it doesn’t like the direction a game is heading in. But if everything keeps proceeding as planned, then Xbox could have its first big Blizzard exclusive on its hands. Provided the acquisition actually goes through, of course.
