Josef Fares, director of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, went to Twitter recently with an interesting message. All he said was: “Keep your eyes out for E3”. This might mean that the Swedish-Assyrian director has come back to directing games, and that we can look forward to seeing his new work at E3 2017.
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is an adventure game, developed by Starbreeze Games and released back in 2013, for basically every single platform available at the time (including every mobile device, even Windows Phone). It got a re-release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in mid-2015 by 505 games. The game got great reviews and retains its share of popularity.
The game was directed by Swedish-Assyrian director Josef Fares, who’s made somewhat of a name for himself through a few of his smaller, indie-films. Recently, however, Fares took to Twitter now that everyone is gearing up for E3 2017. The tweet is just a few choice words, but it seems to be enough to spark a reaction. You can take a look at it below.
Keep your eyes out for E3 🙂— Josef Fares (@josef_fares) April 28, 2017
Talk about a vague announcement. This could very well mean that there’ll be a new game at this year’s E3 that he’s involved in, probably as a director. So far, there don’t seem to be any hints as to which game that might be. The dev team behind Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons first revealed an unnamed project back in 2014. Perhaps that’s what we can look forward to. Fans of stylish, narrative-driven adventure games will certainly rejoice if this does turn out to be true.
Or, it could just turn out that Fares is really excited about E3 2017 for completely unrelated reasons. Maybe he’s just looking forward to finding out what this year’s E3 has to offer, like we all are.
