New AAA studio forms from fiver former EA execs

Cast you mind back to December, when NFS Unbound was just launching, five of Criterions veterans who worked on that game up and left (thanks, GamesIndustry.biz)! However famous five have joined forces to create Fuse Studio.

So who are these five fuse members? well the team is currently comprised oftudio general manager Matt Webster, head of content Steve Uphill, head of technology Andrei Shires, head of operations Alan McDairmant, and head of production Pete Lake.

The new studio will be based in Guildford and are currently working on a AAA title for console and PC. When asked if the game would be a racer like Burnout or NFS based on what they are best known for, Webster kept his cards close to his chest.

“Even our recent history spans a few things,” Webster reminds us. “Obviously arcade racers and open world racers are what we know very deeply. But we have played around in other genres over the years, including Battlefront, Battlefield… VR. We know what we are good at, and that spans a broad range of things now. Once we select our genre, we want to lead that genre.”

Always happy to hear the news of a new studio forming. Read the full article at the link above.
