CEO Harold Ryan talks to GameDaily about how the new studio fits into the ProbablyMonsters business philosophy, and the importance of "sustainable AAA development." “Video games are the largest entertainment category, and it’s time to evolve it by treating the artists and developers with respect, caring for their careers, their health, and their families,” Ryan said. “Putting people first should be the benchmark for the entire industry so that we see great games and healthy careers on a wide scale.” - Harold Ryan
ProbablyMonsters expands its family of studios with a third studio led by Torchlight and Borderlands creative leaders. “People-first game developers with a passion for their craft, who foster trust, respect, and approachability, belong at ProbablyMonsters. John, Marsh, Patrick, and Allen are a perfect fit at ProbablyMonsters, and have joined us to lead the growth of a new co-op RPG studio, adding a new core genre to our family of studios. "Not only do the four leaders have a passion for crafting original co-op RPG games, they’re people-first developers who have a decade of collaborating on successful original RPG franchises. With ProbablyMonsters resources and support behind them, I’m confident they can fulfill their vision of creating outstanding next-gen co-op RPG games." Harold Ryan, CEO and Founder of ProbablyMonsters
ProbablyMonsters has opened an unnamed next-gen studio led by a group of former Borderlands and Torchlight developers. The studio, whose name is still being kept under wraps, is currently working on a next-gen co-op RPG.
ProbablyMonsters has started a new co-op role-playing game studio with former Torchlight and Borderlands creative leaders at the helm. The new studio is the third triple-A game house from parent company ProbablyMonsters. The Bellevue, Washington-based company now has more than 150 employees in three studios, including its previously announced Cauldron and Firewalk dev houses.
A brand-new studio has been launched by a culture-first, AAA-building organization, and it’s already working on a next-gen co-op RPG game–one that will be led by the creative brains behind Borderlands and Torchlight. What’s more, the man who brought us Halo and Destiny has engineered its creation. The as-yet-unnamed outfit is the third of its kind to emerge from ProbablyMonsters, a “new category of game company” which is the brainchild of former Bungie president and CEO, Harold Ryan.
