EA has announced it is to publish new Epic title Bulletstorm, a first-person shooter the Gears of War studio is developing in conjunction with Poland-based developer People Can Fly.
The game will be released onto PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in 2011.
"Bulletstorm is the kind of game we love to make because it's pure, unadulterated entertainment," said Epic Games president Michael Capps.
"People Can Fly has created a wildly fun first-person shooter that looks gorgeous running on the latest Unreal Engine 3 technology, and the skillshot system is a welcome addition to the genre. We can't wait to see how everyone reacts to seeing Bulletstorm."
"We're very excited to work with Epic Games and People Can Fly on this new project. The first time we laid eyes on Bulletstorm, we instantly knew this is going to be the next big hit from these two great studios delivering yet again an entirely new experience for shooter fans," added senior VP and GM of EA Partners, David DeMartini.
The game will tell the story of a futuristic confederation protected by an elite band of mercenaries, with players stepping into the shoes of one soldier called Grayson Hunt.
Epic is also expected to announce Gears of War 3 imminently, via an appearance from designer Cliff Bleszinski on the Jimmy Fallon show set to happen in the US tonight.
The game was unofficially outed last week by an Xbox Live dashboard advert that stated the game would be released in April 2011.
