The name Bullet has been thrown around for a while now as one of Gameloft's upcoming games by loose-lipped beta testers, and we've really had no idea what to expect given it's basically impossible for them to come up with a game title (Or, codename, I suppose) than that. Today's details come care of apparent YouTube watchdog Rafael Forse who caught Gameloft in the process of uploading two trailers, apparently forgetting to hit the ever-important "private video" checkbox in the process. This is easier than it sounds, and has caused some drama for us too in the past-- Oddly enough, with a Gameloft game.

Knowing what we know about Gameloft, and how much they re-purpose their various game types, it seems reasonable to think that Bullet is either a third person adventure game sort of like BackStab [$6.99] or even a Grand Theft Auto style game like Gangstar: Miami Vindication [$6.99]. Either way, it seems clear that it's western themed.

Personally, I'm betting on it being closer to a Grand Theft Auto-esque game similar to Red Dead Redemption since that seems to make the most sense with the horse screenshot. Although, I could just be seeing that because I really enjoyed Red Dead and would love to see something similar on the App Store.

    Chill out, Gameloft. Seems like they're announcing all the time. I mean, some of them are brilliant, but.. I don't have all the money in the world!

      That's why you wait until they drop them to 99c, heh.

    Bullet is not a Red Dead Redemption clone, it's a clone of the 2007 game 'Gun'.

    RDR was great not because of the type of game that it was or a specific gameplay element, but because of the amazing amount of TLC put into the game and its universe. Gameloft could never pull off an RDR clone that is anywhere close to as good as RDR with their short development cycles.

      Thanks, Captain Obvious. I suspect that they considered all of that when they started development for this game on a MOBILE DEVICE.

  • BemBem

    Apparently this may even be an RPG 0.o This is an interesting concept

  • TylerG

    Jed is right, Bullet is a ripoff of Gun, not Red Dead Redemption. I would know, because my brother in law works for Gameloft in the New Orleans offices.

      Dude, so does mine. So crazy. Are we related? Just kidding. HAH.

    now we know what kind of video file gameloft uses to upload to youtube!

    Gameloft dishes out games that lack fluidity these days.

    Although graphics are an important part of gameplay, I believe that games whose performance is unaffected by the level of graphics is the best type of game.

    If Gameloft made every game like they did Modern combat 2, there wouldn't be many critics.

  • TheOneAtGameloft

    Bullet = RDR (i told you!)

  • Steven Seagal

    I can only imagine how incredibly corny the voice acting is going to be on this, especially after the rubbish they had on Backstab.

    looks like a shitty unoriginal uninspired remake of an existing game.

  • Anonymous

    Sounds cool. Hope it's a similar length to Backstab but with the gameplay from 9mm. Certainly hope it's not the other way round!

  • Relytgninroht

    Wait, Gameloft actually beta tests? Their games are so buggy I couldn't tell.

    Seriously though- I still have yet to beat HoSII because it crashes whenever I pass the raising lava room.

    This should be a wake up call to 2K/Rockstar and all the others to develop their titles for iOS as well as Mac or lose potential extra prophets from ip being remade by Gameloft. 

    One can argue that Gameloft is ripping other companies ip's and that would be true but in the absence of those studios unwillingness to providing what iOS gamers want they are filling the void and reaping the not insubstantial profits. 

    It truly boggles my mind the amount of poorly run gaming companies that lack vision and execution in todays games arena. I'd love to see Steve take a crack at it and do what he did with Pixar but at a gaming studio.

    • Relytgninroht

      The issue with big developers/publishers developing games for iOS is that their games take a much higher budget to produce. They figure that they will not profit enough to justify the production of the title due to the fact that few iOS titles are big money makers. Sure there's a few, like Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja, but most games really don't make all that much. Some big publishers/developers have produced games for iOS, but they are either handled by a mobile studio or they are priced premium (look at Capcom and Square for examples of the former and latter). Some see it as a viable, profitable market, but a lot of them do not.

    • Anjoroge

      Rockstar Games singlehandedly reinvented sandbox style games. You think they give a crap about iOS? Also didn't you know that GTA Chinatown wars was ported for idevices? How dare you compare the mighty Rockstar to Gameloft.

      • Anonymous

        Since you missed my point completely in your foaming at the mouth Rockstar fanboy haze, let me reiterate in as simple a fashion as possible. Gameloft is making tons of bank producing reasonable quality games by ripping well established ip because said ip holders are to incompetent to see the large demand for their ip on iOS and fill it themselves.

        Relytgninroht

        iOS development is relatively cheep for an established developer as John Carmack and others have stated. Taking an established franchise to iOS would be a quick turn around as all the assets for that franchise are already done and it's a matter of working out a touch interface and level design.

        Established franchisees have a huge benefit from already being in the public eye because of the huge marketing done for PC/Console which indie developers don't have. Again, it comes down to poor management and execution on the part of these AAA developers.

      • Relytgninroht

        Well what has John Carmack made for iOS? Ports and minigames. The iOS version of Rage was a mini game rather than the actual full length game. It would be too expensive and time consuming to put the actual game on iOS. I was talking about new, full length games- not minigames and ports. My comment was based off of what some big developers have said in interviews. Sure they'll experiment with minigame type games. Look at Activision. They put CoD Zombies on the AppStore rather than an actual CoD game. I really do doubt that we will see a full length CoD game on iOS anytime soon though.

    • Rafael F

      Yes and no.

      Youtube always send me the subscription update email and there I could see that Gameloft just uploaded two new videos to an upcoming game.When I wanted to see it the video was private.

      Hope I could help you TouchArcade ! ;)
