Former Wolfenstein II, Gears of War Devs Launch New Studio Neon Giant; First Project in the Works
Former developers on Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Gears of War, and Bulletstorm have launched a new studio called Neon Giant.
The studio, founded by former Machine Games devs Tor Frick, Arcade Berg, Jonathan Heckley, Erik Gloersen and others, is being backed by Goodbye Kansas – a Swedish game invest.
"Neon Giant consists of a real dream team that not only has enormous experience, they also have an incredibly efficient working process," said Goodbye Kansas Game Invest CEO Per-Arne Luundberg.
"I usually explain that we first and foremost invest in people, no matter how promising their game projects in development are. Neon Giant is a perfect example of this, but they coincidently also have something great in the works - I'm convinced that their first release will be a milestone in Swedish game development."
Other studios backed by Goodbye Kansas include Tarhead, Palindrome Interactive, and Fall Damage.
