It makes singleplayer video games at the start, and each a kind of video games (Max Payne, Alan Wake, Quantum Break, et al) has a robust story carrying it. Treatment’s subsequent title, Management, appears to be related nevertheless it would possibly really put a little bit extra emphasis on gameplay than narrative.
However, Treatment is actively seeking to department out from that singleplayer mentality and method. At present, it revealed a brand new initiative referred to as Treatment Vanguard. It is a small staff inside Treatment whose activity is “to prototype and ship new sorts of ongoing reside multiplayer sport experiences.” No debut mission was introduced, however Vanguard is hiring designers and programmers.
This does not essentially sign a significant shift for Treatment. It is nonetheless going to deal with the narrative stuff that it does greatest.
