Former Bioware general manager Casey Hudson has announced he’s forming a brand new independent studio called Humanoid Studios.
Announcing the new studio via his Twitter account, Hudson said “Today we are announcing a new independent videogame company built to unleash the creative freedom of developers – bringing innovation and artistry to players through an all-new IP.”
While there’s currently little information on what the new studio, based in Canada, is working on, the website does reveal that it’s currently hiring for several roles. These include Senior Gameplay & Level Designers, Environment Artists and even a Senior Creative Director.
Hudson departed Bioware for the second time back in December of last year alongside former Dragon Age director Mark Darrah. At the time Hudson said “2020 has been a year that forced all of us to re-imagine how we think about work and life. For me, it’s been the realization that I still have tremendous energy to create, but also that I need to try something different. I’m not sure exactly what that is yet, but I know that I want to start by rediscovering my creative passion through more personal work.”
The Mass Effect series has continued without him with the release of the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition back in May and a new instalment is also in the works back at Bioware. As for what Humanoid Studios will be working on next, Hudson promises we’ll hear more soon.
We are Humanoid Studios. This is the first tiny step in our journey, and we hope you’ll come along with us on the adventure. https://t.co/b77Z2hbKFG
