Tantalus Media Logo

Tantalus Media is a developer well known for creating ports of popular games for new systems. Two of their more recent well known works include the Wii U ports of Mass Effect 3 and Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

About a year ago, they announced they were working on a big name, AAA port for the Wii U “for an absolute top notch publisher.” Well, recently during a podcast, Tom Crago of Tantalus claimed that the game will be revealed soon and is launching this year, saying the following:

We’re doing that. It hasn’t been announced, but it will be soon. And can I just further add to the mystique and say that it’s big. It’s the biggest thing we’ve ever done. And it’ll come out this year, and I hope it won’t disappoint.

At the same time, he also mentioned that his company is working on porting a current Wii U game to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. So it looks like everyone will be getting the chance to enjoy a game this year they wouldn’t have otherwise gotten to play. Good for Tantalus.

Are you guys excited for this tidbit? Do you have any ideas what this AAA game Tantalus might be working on is? Any thoughts on what the Wii U game might be? Let us know in the comments!
