Development of the new Strider is already in process, and the game this time around will offer an interconnected world with non-linear exploration, rather than using the tried and true model of traditional levels. The ability to return to places that players have already been will add a new element to the game, that is for sure.
Strider will featured a Super A ranked Strider Agent that is on a mission to kill Grandmaster Meio, who is the supreme dictator of earth, as the background for the story line. Not much change in that. The plan is to release the game as a digital download only when it arrives in early 2014. The game is currently being developed for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and the PC. A Wii U release is not planned.
