It took quite some time, but Judas, the new first-person shooter (FPS) from BioShock creator Ken Levine, is finally seeing the light of day. After years apparently in development hell, the game was revealed in official capacity at The Game Awards last year, with developer Ghost Story Games dropping a first-look trailer as part of the announcement.
Fans will have to wait a while before they can play it for themselves, however. According to Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick, the project is currently attached to a March 2025 release window, and makes up one of the 87 games planned for between fiscal 2023 (ending at the end of March) and fiscal 2025 (which concludes at the end of March 2025).
“We did have some slippage in the last few years,” he said to IGN, in response to the latter’s question about delays. “We feel really stable right now. I feel great about our upcoming schedule. Of course there’s always the possibility of some slippage but the teams seem to be functioning really well, and I’m optimistic about delivering great titles to the marketplace on an ongoing basis.”
Not much else is known about Judas right now, except that it’s a single-player FPS with deep narrative roots just like the BioShock trilogy. A synopsis of it offers an idea of what to expect when it arrives on the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and Epic Game Store:
“A disintegrating starship. A desperate escape plan. You are the mysterious and troubled Judas. Your only hope for survival is to make or break alliances with your worst enemies. Will you work together to fix what you broke – or will you leave it to burn?”
