Upcoming PlayStation 5 and PC title, Project Athia, will be an open-world game. This news comes from the president of publisher Square Enix, Yosuke Matsuda.

In a translation from a comment in the Weekly Toyo Keizai plus, "The game Project Athia (title tentative), which we will release for PS5, is an open-world style game in which users can freely move around the game world. PS5 dramatically improves video technology, such as with the implementation of light-reflecting 'ray-tracing' technology. Compared to what you see on PC, it is nearly identical. By utilizing these special traits, we're able to create incredibly precise imagery. We still plan on developing well-balanced games tailored to a platform's traits, including smartphone and cloud-based games, but we will never stop developing for high-end platforms such as PS5. Because these things are packed with the best technology."

This is exciting to know that the game initially revealed in June will be an open-world game and that both the PlayStation 5 and PC versions of the game will be identical thanks to the hardware backing the PlayStation 5.

I am excited to see how the game will turn out. You can check out the reveal trailer below.
