Mass Effect director Casey Hudson has now founded his own studio to develop games independently.
Despite the fact that some big IPs are currently in development like Dragon Age 4 and Mass Effect 5, the former BioWare General Manager, Casey Hudson, left the studio last year and has now gone on to form his own games studio.
Humanoid Studios founded by Hudson includes, according to him, talented developers from around the world and the company is also currently advertising for several job openings including a Senior Gameplay Programmer, Senior Creative Director, 3D Artists and more.
“Today we are announcing a new independent video game company built to unleash the creative freedom of developers—bringing innovation and artistry to players through an all-new IP,” stated Hudson.
Hudson was most well known for his work in Directing and Producing the Mass Effect Trilogy as well as the original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
Usually job openings give us some clue as to what a studio is currently working on, but in this case it is pretty uncertain and only mentions experience with developing AAA games and using the Unreal Engine. The game is described as “an immersive new universe of story, discovery and character.”
Though given Hudson’s past work might definitely indicate some sort of RPG in development. But understandably it is too soon to tell at the moment. But the hope of a new RPG series from one of the original BioWare OGs is intriguing nonetheless.
