Tekken boss looking to announce 2 or 3 new games in 2014

But none are likely to be Tekken 7, Harada adds.

RELATED Tekken Tag Tournament 2

Tekken boss Katsuhiro Harada has said he's working on multiple new projects, and that he hopes to unveil two or three of them in 2014--but it's unlikely that any of them will be Tekken 7.

In an interview with 4Gamer (translated by Siliconera), Harada reflected on his career in 2013. "As part of being the leader in the development of multiple free-to-play titles, I was also involved in the efforts to change the structures of the console gaming industry with the first party group of SCE (Sony Computer Entertainment), I hope to keep this going into [2014] as well."

"Tekken is one of my life's works," the developer added, "and while I can't say much here, together with the titles we were going to announce this year, I'm also working on several other titles simultaneously with Tekken. From there, I'd like to announce at least two of those titles in 2014, and I feel that it's something I must do."

"There are a few titles that we've been quietly working on, and some we've been thinking about working on, so the year 2014 looks like it'll be a tough one," Harada added.

Speaking afterwards on Twitter, Harada clarified that the new games aren't related to Tekken. "Probably I'll announce New 2 or 3 titles in this year. But it's not Tekken. Tekken announcement = secret now," he said.

Namco Bandai released free-to-play versions of Tekken and SoulCalibur in 2013 for PlayStation 3, following the release of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 in 2012.
