Multiplayer shooter for PC, consoles.

Atomic Games, creator of Six Days in Fallujah, has announced a new multiplayer shooter called Breach.

The game's in development for PC and consoles, and appears to revolve around CIA special operatives. So far that's all we know. No publisher has been linked to the game.

"So you've managed to decode this section to reveal the classified information. Come on! Did you really think it was going to be that easy?
