Fan made trailer - concept only (uses scenes from other games)

The producer sued Take-Two Interactive for $150 million in unpaid royalties, alleging that the company tried to force him out after he took a sabbatical. The claim was eventually settled in 2018.

The year prior, he announced the formation of Build a Rocket Boy, an Edinburgh and Budapest-based games studio which has already hired over 130 people including former GTA developers, including GTA V programmer Colin Entwistle, lead cinematics animator Felipe Busquets, music director Craig Conner and audio director Matthew Smith.

According to a new report in The Telegraph, Build a Rocket Boy has now secured investment from companies including Chinese gaming giant Netease.

In its latest funding round the studio raised £32m, according to data from the consultancy Beauhurst. This includes investment from Cayman fund Makers and New York cryptocurrency investor Galaxy Interactive.

“Everywhere has a lot of traditional game mechanics but we’re going for something more that draws inspiration from, well, everywhere,” Benzies said.

“Players are getting smarter and require more from their games, and we want players to have the real freedom to live in our worlds in the ways they want to. We’re aiming to offer a huge variety of game modes and styles that not only tell our stories but also enable players to live in the identities and adventures they most want to explore.”

At the time Benzies said his team would use Amazon’s Lumberyard game engine to make Everywhere.

Indeed.

cormack12 cormack12 that's a fan trailer dude

This is a fan-made trailer. We are not looking to make you believe this is the real trailer. It is just a graphic representation of it. Enjoy.


Also

In the near future, technology has brought humanity to the precipice of a world shifting change.
There are those who want to use this technology to advantage only themselves, and those who want to use it to help all humankind. Will we look to the stars? Or stare only at our feet? Will we be inspired? Or live in fear?

There’s a war between good and evil in the hearts of men and women. Everything is changing. And there’s no going back.

It’s a game. It’s a community. It’s a new world. The storm is on the horizon. And it is only the beginning of EVERYWHERE.

Colour me crazy...but I don't think it's going to be a multi-sport racing game. 🤔
