Two years after a group of Infinity Ward staffers broke away and formed Respawn Entertainment, another batch of Call of Duty developers have struck out on their own. Also home to a handful of former EA and THQ developers, Reload Studios this week announced itself to the gaming world.
While the Californian team is yet to reveal full details of its debut project, co-founder James Chung has indicated a strong interest in virtual reality based experiences. “When I first saw what the latest round of VR devices could do, I realised these were not just peripherals but brand new platforms that could transform the way we experience, interact with and create media,” he said.
Could Reload be working on a title for Oculus Rift or Project Morpheus? It’s too early to say, but we do know that the team is planning to produce an FPS with some sort of VR support. The new studio is aiming to bring its first title to market in 2015.
