The team includes Luc Bouchard, Production Lead, Xavier Marquis as Creative Director, Alexandre Remy as Production Lead, and Romain Rimokh as Content Director.
“We are excited to start with a blank page and the creative freedom to create a completely unique experience in the multiplayer space,” celebrated Marquis. “We felt a true connection to the folks at Amazon Games, their approach to video games … we couldn’t be more excited to start a study with them.”
Now, the objective of the study, as Marquis has well said, is create a new online multiplayer IP. So far, more details about its development or theme are unknown.
