Former Call of Duty community manager and creative director Robert Bowling has former a new studio known as Robotoki.
The new studio, which is already hiring, expects to reveal its first project later this year, for consoles, mobile and PC.
“Robotoki is focused on being a developer development studio that just happens to make games,” he told GameInformer. “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.”
Bowling also went onto describe how the studio intends to create a universe which will span many devices, while also explaining that it’ll be an experience in line with the device it’s being played on.
“As a developer, our focus is on creating a universe first, experiences second, and game mechanics last, ” Bowling said. “With focus being on universe, we aim to create experiences that transcend platforms and genres and allow our players to connect to our world, their characters, and gameplay via any medium (console, PC, or mobile).
“However, how they experience the world is unique to their device. The mobile / tablet experience should not mimic the console or PC experience, it should be additive to it, not supplemental. Allowing them to support their console and PC experience, continue their progression, but by experiencing the world in a meaningful and unique way.”
Finally Bowling added, “Our focus is creating an experience that is no longer strictly single player, strictly co-op, or strictly multiplayer, but adapting the strengths of each of these into a unique experience that is fueled by the actions and contributions in each.”
