It looks like Arkane Studios' co-op shooter Redfall has been in development since Prey: Mooncrash DLC released back in 2017. The full production probably did not kick-off for a couple of more years, though.

One of the biggest reveals at the Xbox and Bethesda Games showcase was certainly Redfall, Arkane Studios' brand new vampire-themed IP. This co-op shooter was revealed with a long cinematic trailer with a target release window of 2022.

Redfall looks like one of the biggest projects from Arkane ever and judging by the latest info found on Linkedin, the game has been in development for at least five years. Of course, this doesn't mean that Arkane Lyon team have been fully focused on Redfall for more than five years. The full production probably did not kick-off for a couple of more years.


The quaint island town of Redfall, Massachusetts, is under siege by a legion of vampires who have blocked out the sun and cut the island off from the outside world. Trapped with a handful of survivors against diabolical enemies threatening to bleed the town dry, choose your hero from a diverse roster, grouping up with others to create the perfect team of vampire slayers.  

Five years of development seem like more than enough for a polished and optimised experience on launch and we certainly hope that Arkane hit the nail on the head once again with Redfall, just like they did with their previous titles.

Redfall is currently scheduled to launch sometime in 2022 for PC and Xbox Series X|S via Game Pass. At the moment, it looks like there are no plans for a PlayStation 5 version of the game.
