2K Video games has tapped Michael Condrey, whose previous credit span Useless House and Name of Obligation, to assist set up a model new sport growth studio primarily based out of Silicon Valley. As studio president, Condrey will “construct and lead a brand new growth staff to work on an unannounced venture.”
The staff does not have a publicly-known identify but, but it surely’s stated to “complement [2K’s] current portfolio and growth experience” which incorporates studios like Firaxis, Hangar 13, and Visible Ideas.
Condrey obtained his begin within the trade at Digital Arts within the late ’90s working as a tester earlier than shifting into producing and directing. He contributed to EA’s string of James Bond video games within the 2000s, Visceral’s sorely-missed sci-fi horror gem Useless House, and most not too long ago, Condrey co-founded Sledgehammer Video games, which has gone on to create Name of Obligation: Superior Warfare and Name of Obligation: WWII.
This new Silicon Valley studio will probably be constructed “from the bottom up.” In different phrases, it is a methods off.
“2K’s studios have artistic and technical autonomy, backed by a world-class infrastructure of assist, and that gives the proper recipe to construct a brand new studio and craft experiences that may lead the following era of gaming for followers in all places,” stated Condrey. I am so not prepared to consider next-gen.
