    im interested to see what it will be.
    i hope its not a shooter though, we have way too many of them!
    hopefully its a story driven game, something deep like assassins creed.

    id love to see them to a crime detective game like heavy rain or condemned 2.
    or even a physiological thriller like alan wake.
    there far too talented, to stick too one genre they need too expand and develop their skills!
