According to Ballistic Moon’s LinkedIn, it is currently developing a new game “with a world-leading publisher.” While the studio itself has yet to reveal who that publisher is, the motion capture actor’s resume lists the company as “Ballistic Moon & Sony Interactive Entertainment.”
The resume for the actor, who did motion capture for two characters in the game, also lists the game’s placeholder title as “Project Bates,” and the motion capture director as Joshua Archer, who previously worked on motion capture for games such as Until Dawn and Horizon Zero Dawn.
Ballistic Moon was founded in 2019 by industry veterans Neil McEwan, Chris Lamb, and Duncan Kershaw. Ewan previously worked on titles such as House of the Dead: Overkill and Syndicate; Lamb worked on Until Dawn and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood; and Kershaw worked on various game projects ranging from Heavy Rain and Sleeping Dogs to Disney Pixar Finding Nemo and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
While Ballistic Moon has not yet shared what type of game it is working on, past tweets indicate it will run on Unreal Engine 5 and feature “emotive” performances. Job listings on the developer’s website state it is a “major new project” still in the “early stages.”
