According to Windows Central – and verified by journalist Jeff Grub – Xbox is reportedly working with Brass Lion Entertainment to create a Wu-Tang Clan themed action RPG.
Speaking on GamesBeat Decides, Grubb said that it is “a game based on Wu-Tang”.
Windows Central reports that Shaolin will be a third-person RPG with four-player co-op and a focus on melee combat. Furthermore, Shaolin will reportedly have a campaign that runs for “a couple of dozen hours” and will feature endgame content with seasonal updates.
Earlier in the year, Brass Lion co-founder Manveer Heir tweeted that development positions were available to work on “an unannounced action-RPG with a dope anime aesthetic”.

Wu-Tang Clan will allegedly be leading efforts to create the game’s soundtrack, though not much else has been revealed regarding their involvement.
Brass Lion Entertainment is currently hiring for a variety of positions that reveal some more about the game. In an advertisement for a lead 3D environment artist, the description notes that this upcoming action-RPG game will release on “the next generation of consoles and PC”. A similar listing for a gameplay programmer reveals that the same action-RPG is being created using Unreal Engine 4.
Brass Lion Entertainment’s website makes no mention of Shaolin, though it’s fair to assume that it is the action-RPG frequently mentioned.
