Balan Company, a new Square Enix studio focused on making action games, will reveal its first title tomorrow. Announced on the studio's website, the announcement will come on July 23 at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern / 9pm UK (that's July 24 at 5am AEST). A follow-up tweet from Square Enix adds that the announcement will be a "new title". That timing is suspiciously close to when we'd expect the Xbox Games Showcase to be wrapping up, so it feels like we may see the game as part of Microsoft's event.

This will be one of the 'several' games Square Enix said it would be announcing between July and August. Earlier this year, Square revealed Project Athia, a new game made exclusively for PS5 and co-written by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story co-writer Gary Whitta.
