Expected to Launch in 2023, Project Slingshot Invites Private Alpha Testers to Lock and Load. Seattle, WA – August 31, 2022 – C77 Entertainment®, a new studio helmed by industry veterans, today announced Project Slingshot, codename for an all-new multiplayer First Person Shooter (FPS) expected to launch in 2023.
Part of Embracer Freemode, a home for creators and entrepreneurs within the gaming and entertainment industry, C77 Entertainment® is a newly formed studio led by industry veterans from the likes of EA® Dice™ and 343 Industries™, a team with decades of experience and responsible for some of gaming’s most prestigious FPS games.
Project Slingshot promises a uniquely fresh take on the FPS genre. A new IP, players are invited to enter a world where corporations rule, using battles to settle their differences to devastating effect. Capitalizing on the chaos, big business monetizes their thirst for power by televising the combat to an adoring TV audience, with players fighting for fame and the will to survive. An objective-based 16v16 sandbox, Project Slingshot promises an experience like no other when gamers pick their weapon of choice and enter the adrenaline-fueled combat of the new world.
