Conduit dev making Kinect game for 2K

Announcement at GDC. Out this year.

Conduit 2 developer High Voltage Software is making a Kinect-enabled game for BioShock publisher 2K Games, Eurogamer can reveal.

Details are thin on the ground. It's a licensed game and it's Kinect enabled, which means it can be played by those who own Microsoft's motion-sensing add-on and those who don't.

What could it be?

High Voltage chief creative officer Eric Nofsinger was tight lipped when cornered by Eurogamer.

"It's not announced yet," he confirmed. "We're doing that with 2K. It's a licensed game. That's our bread and butter as a developer. That's how we've stayed in business for almost 18 years. We don't develop for just one hardware. We don't develop for just one genre of game. We don't develop with just one publisher. We've diversified all the way through."

An announcement is planned for "around GDC". The game will launch this year.

"This game works well with or without the Kinect," Nofsinger added. "It's supported as a device, so if you have the device it works very well, but I don't think it's this brilliant, genius idea.

"It works really well because it's a 360 game. I don't think it necessarily works really well because it's a Kinect game."

High Voltage is currently applying the finishing touches Wii exclusive first-person shooter Conduit 2 for SEGA.

Yesterday Eurogamer brought you the news that it is hard at work bringing Conduit to the Nintendo 3DS, and talks with SEGA have already begun.
