Remedy Entertainment has a long history of making incredibly unique games from Death Rally and Max Payne, to Alan Wake and Quantum Break. Remedy’s recent financial report has given us some insight into just what the team may be up to over the next year. One of the biggest takeaways is that Remedy’s next project, codenamed P7 (or Project 7), will be released in 2019. This new game is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The other game they are working on is Crossfire 2, for which they are developing the single-player campaign.
Here’s the statements regarding Remedy’s current projects:
Both of our game projects have progressed well, and their development work will continue according to the agreed schedules. We have delivered the agreed milestones of the single-player campaign of the CrossFire 2 game for Smilegate Entertainment Ltd., and have correspondingly received the payments tied to the milestones on time. The development of the single-player campaign will continue in 2018. The campaign we are developing is part of the more extensive CrossFire 2 game under development, with Smilegate responsible for its development plans and commercialisation. Our other game project, project P7 that is being done with 505 Games S.p.A., proceeded from the pre-production phase to the production phase at the beginning of the period under review. The development of the game has progressed according to our plans. P7 is expected to be released during 2019.
They also talked about the differences between the two projects:
We took significant development steps in 2017. We adopted a multi-project model and have two game projects in the production phase. Our cooperation with Smilegate on the single-player campaign for CrossFire 2 has continued, and we signed a publication agreement on the game codenamed P7, the brand and intellectual property rights of which we own, with 505 Games. The single-player campaign for CrossFire 2 is our first FPS game, which will expand the game mechanics used by us. P7, on the other hand, will create game mechanics and storytelling techniques for us with which we can offer gamers longer-lasting game experiences.

As a longtime fan of Remedy’s titles, it’ll be very interesting to see just what this game is. Considering that the game will release in 2019, I imagine it’ll be revealed soon, perhaps even at E3 2018? We’ll just have to wait and see.
