"I've been a published author for thirty years now, and most of my books are space operas. I write in that part of the genre because it enables grand ideas to flourish.  Yet this book is different for me. I've never written anything this far into the future before. The fact that it's set in AD 43,000 was the main reason I signed on to the project. It granted me the ability to explore places, societies, and technology right out there on the edge of the fantastical. No science fiction author could resist the opportunity to push their imagination out to the kind of extreme that this timeframe allows. Simply writing it was a wonderful experience, which you'll hopefully share when you read it," states Peter F. Hamilton.

"I have been a huge fan of Peter F. Hamilton since his earliest novels," said James Ohlen, Co-Founder and Executive Creative Director for Archetype Entertainment. "He creates fantastic science-fiction worlds, with a level of detail that transports the reader to the center of an action-packed story that feels so real, it blurs the lines between our world and his. I am thrilled to have him as a partner on Exodus helping us to create this new sci-fi video game world for the Exodus franchise that will engage players for years to come."
