Fredrik Rundqvist, a producer on The Division, has broken away from Ubisoft Massive to form his own studio with other notable talent including developers who worked on Hitman. The company is called Sharkmob and is working on a multiplayer iteration on a “cult classic” game but wouldn’t go into further detail.
“We’re not really interested in making a more traditional single-player type of game,” Rundqvist told Gameindustry.biz. “What we play privately, the kind of games we love, are very social, very competitive, always multiplayer. The more the merrier.”
The studios’ site is online and says the developer is looking for new recruits.
It’s always refreshing to see established talent set off on new ventures. We’re curious to see what Sharkmob is bringing to the table.
