Robert Bowling, former creative strategist for Activision’s Call of Duty mega-franchise, has just announced that he’s starting up his own game studio!
Bowling, or otherwise known as “FourZeroTwo,” is opening “Robotoki” – a game studio that’s “focused on being a developer development studio that just happens to make games.”
Not only has he opened up his own studio but Bowling even shares the studio’s vision.
“We are focused on our team first and everything else second, because I believe as an industry; we have a lot to learn on how to treat talent. While we continue to out stride film and music entertainment in other areas, we are falling severely behind in how to properly inspire and support our creative talent…I wanted to create an environment where the creative vision holders held complete control over their work and could guide and maintain it from concept to execution. “
Bowling also reveals that Robotoki will completely be self-funded and will only partner up with those who support this business model.
If you’re anxious to hear what games they’re working on, sadly, no concrete info has been revealed…although Bowling has let it slip that the studio’s first project will be revealed later this year and it will be for next-gen consoles, PC and mobile devices (iOS, Android, etc.).
If you’re somehow interested to join the studio, just go to their official site as they’re currently hiring for their upcoming project.
Needless to say, we wish everyone at Robotoki all the best.
