Infinity Ward is no stranger to their staff breaking off and forming new studios, first we had Respawn Entertainment, now we have Reload Studios. Reload Studios is an LA based developer, formed by James Chung and Taehoon Oh.
With a 12-strong team at Reload, the developer is working with a focus on virtual reality technology for mobile, home and console platforms. What exactly that means remains to be seen, but one can only assume they’ll be tinkering with devices such as the Oculus Rift, Morpheus and some of the Android based headsets.
“When I first saw what the latest round of VR devices could do, I realized these were not just peripherals but brand new platforms that could transform the way we experience, interact with and create media. It was the perfect time to follow my passion and bring together the most talented people I know under one roof to form a development culture that promotes creativity and collaboration” said Chung in a recent press release.
Pete Blumel, Former Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Series Producer, Hougant Chen from Infinity Ward and Nik Ranieri, an ex Disney Animator join James and Taehoon, so there is certainly some talent kicking around their office and personally, I can’t wait to see VR-enabled FPS they’re said to be working on.
