A group of developers who previously worked for Blizzard have announced the creation of their own company called Notorious Studios.
8 former Blizzard employees founded Notorious Studios
All Notorious employees have previously worked on development for World of Warcraft, including the two co-founders. Chris Kaleiki was the class system designer on Blizzard’s MMORPG. While Doug Frazer is a senior gameplay engineer. Both left Blizzard last October.
Accordingly, the team currently consists of 8 people and wants to grow the studio to 12 employees by early 2022. Developer Riot Games has invested in the new studio as part of a $5 million funding round.
The investment will go towards the development and launch of the debut title Notorious, known as a massively multiplayer RPG.
Kaleiki talks about the company’s plans to promote a positive, inclusive company culture. “The challenges Blizzard has had over the past few months is really troubling for those who have stayed,” he said. It also affects us, even though we’ve been away from Blizzard for a while.”
Sharing more about this, Chris said: “It is important that we have now started a new culture at Notorious Studios where there is transparency and openness. We look forward to implementing many projects that are still in the pipeline and all hope for the best.”
According to the studio’s official website, one of the characteristics of Notorious Studios is that there are no executives and all employees are equal. This will help avoid discrimination in the workplace.
The studio is developing an online third-person role-playing game that focuses on real-time combat, additionally, it will take place in a new fantasy world. Gamers can completely trust this unit when there is an investment from Riot to enjoy cult products in the future.
