Sega creating a hardcore gamer-oriented Kinect game for 2011

June 23, 2010

This piece of info comes from Sega West boss Mike Haye’s interview with CVG:

Sega is developing a hardcore Kinect game that is likely to be released late next year, CVG can reveal.

He added: “We want to do more clever things on it – create original ways of using it, rather than just taking existing ideas and not just doing the same thing. Having said that, of course, with the success that we’ve had with Wii, there are a lot of motion games we would like to reinvent for Move and Kinect.

“We’ve got a tech group based in England, in Southall [Middlesex]. We took them from the Racing Studio when we closed that as it was actually a very good team – we just couldn’t find something for them to do. They’re sat with their test tubes and bunsen burners and that’s exactly what they’re doing – using the new devices to see what we can do in an original way.

“We’ve got one good idea and hopefully something will be out the back end of next year, perhaps early 2012, which we think will use the aspects of Kinect a lot more originally and in a more sophisticated way.”

Much like Sega did with the Wii, here’s hoping they can come up with something as creative as Mad World and The Conduit, but for Kinect.
