British developer Charles Cecil is set to announce Revolution Software's first original title in eight years, hotly tipped to be Broken Sword 5.
"We’ve risked the frustration of the fans," says Cecil. "They know that we’re writing a new game. We’re going to be announcing it with a fanfare."
Cecil has also revealed the new game will largely be in 2D to feel like a "classic adventure".
"When you move to 3D it changes the essence. With 2D the game feels like a classic adventure. But in our next game we will use 3D where appropriate.
"Visually in 2D we can go for a '2D look'. Layout artists bend perspective to suit a mood, whereas the 3D camera is literal," he added.
