We Happy Few Developer Compulsion Games Working on New Third-Person Single-Player Game


Compulsion Games, the first-party Xbox developer of We Happy Few, is working on a new third-person single-player game. In a recent interview with Xbox Squad, Naila Hadjas, Head of Press Relations at Compulsion Games spoke talked about the studio’s recent expansion, its place in being a part Xbox Game Studios along with giving an early tease of their next game.

Hadjas talked at length about how the studios’ games, Contrast and We Happy Few, were released to mixed reception, with the art direction being given praise in particular.

“We are a fairly young studio. Even though we have been around for 12 years, we have released only 2 games, we are not old,” she said. “The more games we make, the more we will learn from our mistakes. Two games is not huge but we can understand our shortcomings. The artistic we master, gameplay side, we work on it in a very thorough way. We try to work on our flaws.”

Hadjas also talked about Compulsion Games’ next project, which will be from a third person perspective, a first for the developer. While the developer’s previous games were made with Unreal Engine, Hadjas declined to reveal whether the new game is being made with Unreal Engine 5. The new project started development a few months after We Happy Few’s release, with the game now almost 2 years into development. Unlike We Happy Few, the new game won’t include rogue-like elements. The game, now being developed as potentially an Xbox exclusive, will also release on Xbox Game Pass at launch.

“With our new game, a narrative game, third person, a story, I don’t think we need any feedback,” she said. “It’s not like a rogue-like where you replay several times and you need data to make sure the experience is fun. We Happy Few has evolved a lot, at first it was a rogue-like and then we added a story because people loved the world, the characters, so we said ‘ok, we’re going to make a real game with an end and a story’. The next game is a story, we know where we’re going.”

We Happy Few is available now on PC, PS4, Xbox One along with being available on Xbox Game Pass.
