An image posted on the website of Fumito Ueda's gen Design has stirred up rumors that it could be a teaser for the studio's next project. The image shown on the cover above is posted with the caption "Happy New Year 2018! May this be a happy and fruitful year" can be seen just before you enter the studio's website. The source code of the image was also posted in Resetera which contains the name "Beauty and the Beast 2018" as the title of the image. It was noted that Fumito Ueda traditionally creates an image early to represent what he wanted to achieve as per Eurogamer who had the opportunity to talk to the developer last summer.
The studio has yet to make a comment regarding the image, but from the looks of it, there's a big possibility that this could be a new project since the image does not resemble any of the studio's previous projects. Stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
