The studio formerly known as Irrational Games will now be called Ghost Story.
Twelve former Irrational Games employees have teamed up to create a new studio with a similar focus to their old home, Irrational Games. The studio that brought you the classics Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite are back and still interested in bring us strong story driven games.
Alongside that they want the games to be as challenging as the stories they can create. Here’s their statement:
Ghost Story was founded by twelve former Irrational Games developers and our mission is simple: to create immersive, story-driven games for people who love games that ask something of them. While we believe our new games will have strong appeal to fans of BioShock, our new focus allows us to craft experiences where the gameplay is as challenging as the stories.
We are not yet ready to share any more on our new game, but we invite you to join us and take part in our community, Sign up here.
For fans of their former series I suggest you sign up for some updates. It’ll be interesting to see what Ghost Story brings to the table in the future. The world needs more strong story driven games. It’s also worth noting that the studio is looking for some more talent. Check that out here.
