Frictional Games are NOT the ones making A machine for pigs, The Chinese room are the ones developing it, probably on a slightly more updated verision of HPL2.

FG has not revealed what their next game is and for what we know they could still be working on the engine. (HPL3)
As I heard it, Frictional Games and TheChineseRoom were working together to make it. I will quote from http://www.nextfrictionalgame.com

"A collaborative effort between Frictional Games and thechineseroom. Coming fall 2012."

I'm not trying to contradict you or anything, just stating what I know.

During the Walkbridge.avi clip you can see the developer use Windows Explorer to import some bits 'n' pieces, and the file/directory names visible are quite interesting, at least in the sense that they give us an idea of some of the locations we can expect to visit:

Holy crap, hes making the new models for Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs? No wonder Amnesia: The Dark Descent looked so good! (Unless that was not him making the models for TDD at the time.)

Robert Briscoe, the guy who made Dear Esther look like Crysis and Skyrim combined, is working on A Machine For Pigs as well. He worked alongside Wesley Tack on Mirror's Edge and some other non-industry mod projects:

AMFP is gonna look perty. I wish thechineseroom would give us just a little morsel of new info, even just a stickman concept art or something!

Judging from the streetlight model, there should be some outside parts Big Grin

Actually, I think I've got my information wrong. I don't think he is working on AMFP after all. He's the guy who created the concept art we saw during the ARG, but I don't think he has any further involvement beyond that.

Sorry 'bout that Confused
