Trade veteran Patrick Söderlund and his workforce at Embark have a team-based shooter within the works. The previous DICE CEO and Chief Design Officer at EA left the publisher in 2018 to form Embark with Nexon as its writer.
Söderlund’s submit on Embark’s blog explains that the current job openings for the studio are for a PvP team-based shooter in improvement. Along with sharing a chunk of character idea artwork (above) Söderlund, who says he thought he was “executed” with making aggressive shooters, says the pitch for this mission was “too irresistible to disregard”. He provides that the sport closely emphasizes teamwork and “places dynamism, physicality, and destruction entrance and heart”. It’ll doubtless be some time earlier than we see a lot of substance from this mission provided that Embark is at present staffing up for it, but it surely’s cool to get a glimpse of what’s occurring over there.
This new shooter can be Embark’s second sport at present within the works. The studio introduced its first title in February 2019, which we nonetheless know subsequent to nothing about. In line with the submit, the primary mission apparently entered manufacturing this previous spring. The remainder of the weblog submit gives an replace on Embark’s sport creation platform and is price a learn for an thought of the varied irons the studio has within the hearth.
Söderlund served as CEO of Battlefield developer DICE when EA acquired the studio in 2006. He climbed EA’s company ladder earlier than turning into Chief Design Officer in April 2018. Söderlund then departed the corporate later that August. He is maybe finest remembered for pushing the adoption of DICE’s Frostbite engine for all EA titles together with Mass Impact, Want for Pace, and the EA Sports activities video games.
