After days of teasing, developer Flying Wild Hog has finally revealed Shadow Warrior 3, the next game in its tongue-in-cheek melee-shooter franchise.

Shadow Warrior 3 will be the first new title in Flying Wild Hog's series since 2016's Shadow Warrior 2 (opens in new tab), and is launching in 2021, with platforms to be confirmed. 

The game's official synopsis promises to bring Shadow Warrior "to the next level with a seamless blend of fast-paced gunplay, razor-sharp melee combat, and a spectacular free-running movement system."

What we don't yet know, however, is whether it'll bring it to next-gen consoles, too, with the PS5 (opens in new tab) and Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) slated to launch this Holiday, ahead of the game's launch the following year. 

In any case, it's another mid-range title to get excited about, especially if you're a fan of Shadow Warrior's unique brand of outlandish spectacle.
