A new studio has opened up by the developer of Call of Duty Mobile will be creating a brand new shooter.
A brand new studio, known as TiMi Seattle which is a division of Tencent will be looking into creating a brand new shooter title. TiMi Studio Group are the studio behind the development of popular mobile titles such as Honor of Kings and Call of Duty Mobile.
The team will consist of 25 people along with Rosi Zagorcheva and Scott Warner who have an abundance of experience under their belts.
Zagoracheva has a background in shooter titles as she has previously worked as the senior director on titles such as Star Wars: Battlefront, Battlefield 4 and Battlefield V.
Warner also has experience as he has worked as lead designer of Halo 4.
It has also been revealed that the team is in the process of working on a new original title, however there were no further details shared.
Warner said in an interview with GamesBeat, “We’re working on a first-person shooter, competitive game, live service, with a lot of people assembled who have made those games for quite some time. We are concentrating on PC and console for now. But ultimately, we want our game to be played on as many platforms as it can be.”
Warner took to Twitter to say “The most exciting thing about what we’re up to is having the freedom to make the game we want to make with a AAA budget.”
Zagorcheva said “What attracted me was the new IP and the triple-A scale. That’s a rare opportunity in the industry. And possibly what I’m even more excited about is this chance to do everything right, to create a studio to create a culture, to form a team with no baggage – a clean slate to create something amazing”.
With heaps of industry knowledge and a sizeable budget, we are sure that something great is in the works over at the studio.
It is likely that the project is in the early stages so it could be a while before we see anything come into fruition, but in the meantime be sure to check with us at Gamerficial for the latest news and updates.
