Abrams said in his partner's statement: "I am a loyal game fan. I really envy you more and more.DevelopmentThe amazing tools that people use and the world they can create. Now we are doubling our commitment to this field through a unique way of developing a common development game, which enables us to focus on what we are best at and to be a meaningful force for our development partners. "
Designers, visual artists and writers from Bad Robot will work with developers to target all game markets: PC, mainframe and mobile phones.
The Tencent may provide financial support in exchange for the commercial distribution rights of the games produced. This may, to some extent, restrict new companies from doing what Abrams is best at: reinvigorate old IP with modern aesthetics and massive visual effects. Consider the manufacturers of many popular 3A games - such as call of duty and mystical waters - that are the exclusive cooperation agreements that maintain years or permanent with the publishers.
Abrams himself won't be a leader in the new company, which is given to Dave Baranoff, who has produced a lot of games and interactive content for Bad Robot over the past ten years. Of course, it's not the first time he's got into the "real" game industry - Baranoff and Bad Robot are currently working with game developers Epic and ChAIR to develop a mysterious game called Spyjinx. In addition, the creation of the Duskers series Tim Keenan will become the creative director of the new company.
At present, the new company has not disclosed any further announcements, such as its first project or the development partner of Bad Robot game company. I hope to hear more good news at the E3 game show next week.
