Respawn Founders Create New AAA Studio Gravity Well

Today former Respawn founders announced their brand new studio Gravity Well. A new small AAA studio that is aiming for a team of 85 people to create games for next gen. Per their website;

“Ask around, and you’ll get the same answer from devs – once your team size crosses 100 people, everything changes. It’s nobody’s fault – big organizations just move slowly. You need meetings just to make decisions. Choices get siloed and brilliant creatives become less creative. So let’s just not do that. We’re going to build a team that is 80-85 people at peak.We aren’t satisfied with the low level of creative risk that gets project funding these days. We want to explore bold new ideas exclusively for next-gen hardware and PCs.Given the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re starting the studio for remote work from the very start. Since one of the core values of Gravity Well is increased diversity, we’re excited about not being hamstrung by relocation or work visa issues. We want to hire the best talent in the industry, regardless of where you live.We’re excited to build this new team and we hope that you’re interested, too. If now isn’t the right time, reach out anyway and we can just have a nice conversation. If you work in games, we’d love to hear from you.”

It will be very interesting to see what this team creates. With experience with games like Titanfall, Apex Legends, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and Modern Warfare 2 we should be in for a treat.
