Shift Up Corporation is Already Preparing for Their Next Game

Shift Up Corporation’s Next Game

Founded in 2013, Shift Up is a South Korean studio that originally specialized in mobile titles. It found early success with Destiny Child, a gacha RPG which was launched for Android and iOS devices in 2016. That release warranted a spin off in the form Destiny Child: Defense War, a 2020 mobile title that also featured gacha mechanics, but delivered an SRPG like gameplay loop with grid based combat.

Stellar Blade is the latest announced game by Shift Up Corporation. The game will make it’s launch at 26 April and it looks like after this date, the company won’t be free as well and they are preparing for their next game. Much like Stellar Blade, the mysterious title is envisioned as an action RPG taking place in an “urban sci-fi” setting with some monster like creatures, according to a machine translation of one of the job openings.

Another similarity to Stellar Blade concerns the project’s engine of choice, as the upcoming game is also planned to be made in Epic’s Unreal Engine. Stellar Blade itself uses Unreal Engine 4, but it is plausible that Shift Up’s next game will utilize the newer version of the popular engine, which was released in April 2022. Given how several job listings describe the unannounced title as a “AAA” project, the game itself will presumably be targeting consoles, PC, or both. That is also implied by the fact that several job openings ask for candidates who are well versed in both PC and console development.

Although Stellar Blade itself is a PS5 exclusive, it wasn’t always planned as such. Shift Up only partnered with Sony in 2021, after former SIE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida played the Stellar Blade prototype and pushed for the Japanese gaming giant to publish the game.

Shift Up’s next title will presumably be handled by Second EVE Studio, the company’s subsidiary that was established with the explicit purpose of making big budget console games, starting with Stellar Blade.

Stellar Blade will make it’s launch at April 26. We pressume that Stellar Blade is only exclusive at PS5 for 6 month or 1 year. After that time passes, we hope to see the game in other platforms as well.
