Outcast devs form Daoka, will build new games in series

New studio 'Daoka' developing new Outcast games
Developers from AMA Studios and Appeal, the team responsible for the 1999 PC game Outcast, have started a new studio called Daoka, based in Belgium. Daoka has been working on a game for two years already, set to launch on next-gen consoles in the "near future."

The team will also work on games in the Outcast franchise. The original developers of Outcast – Yann Robert, Franck Sauer and Yves Grolet – recently bought the IP from Atari for a "revival of the franchise," and they are working with Daoka to make this happen.

Outcast is a sci-fi adventure set in the distant, wild future of 2007, starring former Navy SEAL Cutter Slade as he travels with a group of scientists to another dimension to stop a black hole from forming. You know, the sort of stuff that happens all the time in the 21st century.
