Creative Assembly reveals “ballsy” multiplayer sci-fi heist shooter Hyenas

Developer Creative Assembly has finally unmasked Hyenas, its long-in-the-works sci-fi shooter project – and while Alien Isolation fans might be a little disappointed it’s not a much-hoped for successor, anyone who’s ever dreamed of Payday-like heists in a space should be very cheerful.

Creative Assembly first revealed it was working on a sci-fi shooter back in September 2018, calling it an “ambitious multiplayer title” and a “fresh take on the FPS genre” that would enable players to “embrace a variety of creative playstyles”. Almost four years later, that project has now been named as Hyenas, a “ballsy entry into the most competitive genre in gaming”.
