Now we know that there will be a PlayStation 5. Sony had previously confirmed as much, although there is the question of when the console will be released (some believe it could be launched in 2019). Regardless of a release date, it appears that Square Enix could already be working on something for the console.

In a post on ResetEra, it appears that thanks to the resume of Tomohiro Tokoro, a 3D character model lead artist at Square Enix’s Luminous Productions, it was listed that he is working on a “new AAA title for PS5”. Details about said title is next to nothing for now, except that it will be for Sony’s next-gen console.

For those unfamiliar, Luminous Productions is a division of Square Enix which is tasked to create AAA games. It was also created by Hajime Tabata, the producer behind titles like Final Fantasy XV, although he has since left the company which also resulted in the game’s remaining DLCs being cancelled.

That being said, we guess we can’t say we’re too surprised that Square Enix might already be working on something. After all we imagine that many companies would like to be one of the first to launch a game on a new console. We also have to wonder if they’re already working on a game, does it mean that a SDK for the PS5 already exists?
