Blitz Games has told GamesIndustry.biz that next-gen zombie title Possession is only on hold while the team concentrates its efforts on a major new title for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

While some media outlets have assumed Possession has been canned, Blitz has revealed that the work-in-progress title has helped the team get more development work, this time for a top tier publisher.

"Work on Possession is temporarily on hold but only because we've reassigned the team to work on a major new project on PS3 and Xbox 360," said a senior spokesperson for the company.

"Much of the work done on Possession directly led to us signing this new game and some of the technology has been enhanced further and will appear in this new title."

The Xbox 360 and PS3 project falls under Blitz's Volatile label, the division that works on games for a more mature market. Although the developer cannot yet reveal the publisher behind the project, the team is looking to expand in order to fulfil the expected demand of working on a high-profile title.

"This new project is a massive departure in style and content for Blitz Games," offered the spokesperson.

"We are on an even more aggressive recruitment drive for what will be a very high-profile title. We are truly honoured to be working with one of the most respected publishers in the world on this project," said Blitz.
