There is news of a new AAA studio being founded by a veteran of the gaming industry. Such news raises a lot of questions, such as who is involved and what will happen as a result. We saw Glen Schofield leave EA and branch out on his own with Striking Distance Studios. Hideo Kojima famously left Konami and gave us Death Stranding leaving behind his baby, the Metal Gear Solid franchise. Now it’s the turn of this new studio called Maverick Games. Since the team behind the moniker has an intriguing roster, it raises the question of who is actually participating. Let’s introduce the studio and the team members engaged without further ado.

Maverick Games has an impressive list of names joining. We have staff from EA, Sumo Digital and Playground Games. Like Playground Games itself, Maverick will be a British based studio operating from Leamington Spa the home of Playground Games as well. The studio was founded by Mike Brown, a former Creative Directors from Playground Games. He was the lead on Forza Horizon 5 after taking over from Ralph Fulton. He did the previous four and is expected to be leading the Fable reboot.

Who Is Joining Mike Brown At Maverick Games

As we said, the roster of staff includes some heavy hitters and veterans of the industry. The first name on the list was recruited as the new Chief Operating Officer, Harinder Sangha. They were the former co-studio head for Sumo Digital Leamington. From EA is Elly Marshall, who will be the UX/UI director. He also has a list of ex-Playground Games staff joining alongside him, and they are as follows:

  • Tom Butcher who produced Forza Horizon 2-5, they will be joining as Executive producer
  • Matt Craven joins as the Chief Technology officer
  • Gareth Harwood joins as content director
  • Fraser Strachan will take on the role of audio director
  • Ben Penrose will take the role as art director

A statement from Mike Brown stated

Our goal is for Maverick Games to be a studio people will love. For players, we’re already at work on an exciting ultra-high quality title, and for developers, we’re building a home where everyone is encouraged to take risks, be curious, be creative, be innovative, be themselves, and above all – be a Maverick.

For the game that they will debut with, we have no idea what it could be, but it’s said to be a “new, premium open-world game for consoles and PC”. As always we’d love to hear from you on this news
