Small update on Myst TV and potential news on Cyan’s next game

We got a bit of an update on the Myst TV series, Rand Miller (aka Atrus) was asked about it at the last Mysterium. It looks like it is still in the pre-planning stages, still working with the same studio as before so Legendary Tv and likely Hulu are still moving forward with the series. He thinks he may have more details within the coming year and seems fairly optimistic about the progress. If you want to listen to him he talks about it in the interview below at about 1:10:10

Other point of interest in the interview, it sounds like The Latus Project (pronounced Lattice) is going to be Cyan Inc.‘s next project, this is one that was in the works from at least 2004 in Cyan, talks about it at 1:22:39, from what he is saying it sounds like it has evolved a lot since his initial description of it in a 2005 interview;
“Our new project is called Latus – a completely new type of interactive entertainment that mixes linear storytelling and interactive 3D in a way that has never been done before. It’s hard to describe. It feels like a new kind of genre.”
Main new thing he mentions about it is he thinks it would work well with virtual reality, which if you look at the linkedin for the head of business for Cyan, Blake Lewin, it lists it as a virtual reality project. Links with information on Latus below;
