Frontier still "working hard" on Outsider

"Watch this space," says Braben.

LostWinds developer Frontier Developments has promised that ambitious "next-gen" game The Outsider hasn't been thrown in the bin.

"It's very exciting and we're still working hard on it," studio boss David Braben told Eurogamer. "I'm not talking about it yet but watch this space."

Braben hasn't talked properly about The Outsider since 2005, when the game was announced. Back then we heard promises of "genuine freedom" inside a "gripping, high-tech thriller" where the player, a CIA operative, is wrongly turned into Public Enemy Number One. The choice of how to proceed from their was to be entirely yours.

Two years after the game's announcement, all Braben had to tell us was that work was "going very well, thanks".

Of course, Braben has been busy making acclaimed WiiWare game LostWinds and now LostWinds 2. But that won't keep the staff of around 200 busy all day, every day, will it?

The Outsider was in development for "new consoles", which back at announcement were PS3, Wii and Xbox 360.
