Summer Game Fest surprised fans with a new look at Witchfire, with a gameplay reveal and early access announcement. 

The first-person shooter is expected to launch into early access in late 2022, developed by Polish independent studio The Astronauts for Microsoft Windows.

It was first announced to be in development back in 2017. On June 9, during the Summer Game Fest livestream, new footage of the dark fantasy title was unveiled – and it looks like fans of Destiny are going to lap this one up.

The presentation was hosted by  Geoff Keighley, who was joined by not just a number of game developers and publishers from around the world, but also Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

While the WWE superstar loves the spotlight, it was Witchfire that stole the show for that segment – as Astronauts gave more insight into their world.
