Without a doubt, a bevy of gamers have been looking forward to Square Enix delivering some big announcements during its video livestream for E3 2018, as players had been excited to learn more about what the company has been working on. While the publisher and developer somewhat underwhelmed everyone due to the presser's duration, there were some surprises such as the reveal of a brand new game known as The Quiet Man.
As seen in the trailer below, Square Enix's The Quiet Man appears to be an FMV-playthrough styled game, and it sounds like it carries the theme that "silence rings the loudest". Square Enix describes The Quiet Man as a project that's capable of delivering "an immersive story driven cinematic action experience" tying together "high-production live action, realistic CG and pulse-pounding action gameplay." It is then explained as "an adrenaline-fueled motion picture like experience which can be completed in one sitting", possibly indicating a small dose of content.
The Quiet Man is coming to the PlayStation 4 and Steam, but there hasn't been any mention of a version for the Xbox One. Very little is known about The Quiet Man thus far other than the fact that it is being created by Human Head Studios, who has been maintaining radio silence since the cancellation of Prey 2. However, fans should know more about the new FMV-like project from the developer come August 2018.
The Quiet Man was revealed amid a flurry of other exciting releases during Square Enix's E3 2018 press conference, as it shared stage space with Kingdom Hearts 3, Just Cause 4, and Platinum Games' Babylon's Fall. Speaking of the lattermost title, The Quiet Man shares the familiar trait of some Square Enix games announced this year not coming to Xbox One, choosing to go with PC and PlayStation 4 instead. We will likely learn more about why that's the case as E3 2018 continues.
Square Enix's The Quiet Man is currently in development for PC and PlayStation 4.
