Automata studio PlatinumGames confirmed at this year's BitSummit that it's working on a new IP.

The studio behind Bayonetta and NieR: Automata, PlatinumGames has teased that it is in the early stages of development for a brand new IP. Unfortunately, Inaba opted not to announce the studio's new partner, meaning that details of the project can not even be speculated upon. Platinum must develop its own IPs and leverage them to have any success in the current environment. He also noted that this new IP would be spearheaded by a new director, which seems to hint that this could be something unique compared to the other games in the company's repertoire.

We'll let you know once the team makes any sort of official announcement. He adds that they're looking forward to producing new games for fans, though it's possible that some of the projects may take a little more time in order to be fully realized. The news was delivered by PlatinumGames Producer Atsushi Inaba during BitSummit in Tokyo this weekend. He did announce, however, that the studio is working with a new director for the title, which will come as little surprise to fans of the team.

While enjoying one of the best reputations in the industry, Platinum Games tends to do the bidding of publishers rather than carve their own game series'.
