Straight from the rumor mill: Currently the internet explodes and the hivemind says the new Piranha Bytes project is a new game called Elex Nordic teased. World of Risen and NeoGAF members are convinced they've seen a masked Piranha Bytes logo on the Elex page, which has been replaced in the meantime.

Both companies have an ongoing business relationship: Nordic distributes or publishes Gothic 2 & 3 since JoWooD's demise.

Nordic Games' countdown ends today at 14:00 CET, Piranha Bytes' on Friday.

Thanks Moriendor!

More information.

1 hour and 17 minutes to go.

It's 6:43 am here, and I've been up most of the night. I'm tired as hell right now

I'm not going to bed for at least another hour and 17 minutes. :)

I guess this means I'll be driving home from work with a smile on my face ;)

“ELEX” is a handcrafted action role-playing experience from the award-winning creators of the Gothic series, set in a brand new post-apocalyptic Science Fantasy universe that puts players into a huge seamless game world full of original characters, mutated creatures, deep moral choices and powerful action.

Not much to go by, but I'm intrigued.

From their Forum (http://community.elexgame.com/threads/22-Nordic-Games-Piranha-Bytes-ELEX?p=49#post49):

Nordic Games teams up with veteran studio Piranha Bytes to work on their first collaborative and new project: ELEX. This eclectic, lavish, exhilarating, xenial open-world RPG is scheduled to release in Winter 2016/2017 on PC and current gen console platforms. This is by far the most ambitious project for Piranha Bytes and Nordic Games to date.

“To say we are excited to see this new project unfold in the hands of Piranha Bytes is an understatement. ELEX is going to be edgy, dark, uncompromising, complex, and we love it already,“ comments Reinhard Pollice Business & Product Development Director at Nordic Games. “We will be premiering a vertical slice build at Gamescom 2015, more info will be released in due time.”

“Apart from being enthusiastic about the cooperation with Nordic Games, it is great to know, that we will have ample creative freedom with ELEX, which is a very important factor for us” said Björn Pankratz, Game Director at Piranha Bytes. "We can't wait to show you a completely new game experience with a fresh setting, new assets and plenty of possibilities."
