Ex-Witcher 3, Hitman, Dying Light Devs Form New Studio

Ex-developers of AAA games like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Hitman, and Dying Light have teamed up to form a new development studio in Wroclaw, Poland.

The studio is called Strange New Things, and its website states the team is composed of “ex-AAA developers that wanted more.” Those developers have come from CD Projekt Red, IO Interactive, Techland, and more.

Strange New Things is currently working on its first project, but details are unclear: the website simply calls refers to the game as “Project [BLANK].”

“This is the project name of our upcoming game that will be about [BLANK], which is set in [BLANK], from the perspective [BLANK],” it states. “This project holds a special place in our heart. It tells the story of a particular moment in a particular time and place. That moment made a huge impact on [BLANK].

“All will be revealed at the right time,” the blurb concludes.

The studio’s pedigree is impressive: The Witcher 3 won GameSpot’s Game of the Year in 2015, while we also enjoyed both Dying Light and Hitman. The latter came in our top 25 games of 2016, and recently got a new trailer to celebrate its upcoming disc releasecheck it out here.
