Playground Games is currently working on an unannounced open-world action-RPG, and the rumor has it that this game just may be Fable IV. Still, Fable or not, according to GamesIndustry.biz, the Playground team has recently added a number of experienced developers to its roster. Coming over from such studios like BioWare, Ninja Theory, and Guerrilla Games, these new developers bring along plenty of AAA experience, meaning that whatever they're working on, it's going to be fairly big. An excerpt:
UK studio Playground Games has hired another wave of top talent for its unannounced action RPG, GamesIndustry.biz can reveal.
The developer has added a range of recruits from acclaimed games makers such as BioWare, Rocksteady Games, Ninja Theory, and Guerrilla Games, plus hires from Electronic Arts' Motive studio, which is still working on its debut title.
All of the new hires will be working on Playground's open-world action RPG, which is being developed at the firm's second studio we revealed last year. It has already hired a variety of AAA talent for the project, including devs from the GTA V, Metal Gear Solid and Hellblade teams.
“I'm really pleased with the quality of the team we're building here at Playground," studio director Gavin Raeburn tells us. "We continue to attract world-class talent from around the world thanks to our exciting projects and the passion of our team. It's been a fantastic start for our second studio and I look forward to seeing it continue to grow over the coming months.”
