    In a memo to staff today, Ubisoft head of studios Virginie Haas said Polfeldt had informed management last fall that he was "ready for a new challenge." He will begin a six-month sabbatical on July 1 and will return to Ubisoft in a "strategic role," Haas wrote.

    Ubisoft has identified a new leader for Massive who will start in October, but Haas wrote that they cannot announce that person yet due to a legal agreement with his current employer.

    "[T]he studio is in fantastic shape, and I am exceptionally grateful for what we have accomplished together," Polfeldt said in a message posted to Massive's company blog.

    "We have already appointed David’s successor and look forward to sharing more details at a later date," an Ubisoft spokesperson said in a statement.

    Last fall, Polfeldt published a book about his time in gaming, titled "The Dream Architects: Adventures in the Video Game Industry."

    The Norwegian company is also opening a new office in Romania, dedicated to QA

    Conan Exiles developer and publisher Funcom has announced the acquisition of Swedish studio The Outsiders.

    The two parties had been collaborating on upcoming rhythm game/FPS hybrid Metal: Hellsinger, with Funcom acting as publisher and now acquiring a majority stake in the developer for an undisclosed sum.

    The executive team at The Outsiders will remain the same, the announcement said.

    In addition, Funcom announced it's opening a new studio in Bucharest, Romania, which will be dedicated to quality assurance. It's the company's fourth office, after Oslo (Norway), Lisbon (Portugal) and Raleigh (USA).

    Funcom CEO Rui Casais commented: "The Romanian gaming scene is flourishing, and Bucharest in particular is home to many talented people in the tech and gaming industry.

    "With our continued growth and increased level of ambition, assuring that we have top quality QA is of the utmost importance. We are therefore very excited to be able to expand to this region with one of the most crucial parts of the development process and we are even planning on adding more functions to this studio over time."

    Funcom was acquired by Tencent in January last year for around $148 million.

This signifies that both parties have agreed to a generalized deal while lawyers continue hashing out the finer points.

    Microsoft and Kojima’s teams have spent months discussing a possible partnership, and now it is more likely than ever that those conversations will bear fruit. The deal is so close that Microsoft has begun preparing for what Kojima will need to make his new game.

    Electronic Arts and Tencent-backed Hi-Rez Studios are among the first to partner with a new in-game advertising platform.

    The platform is titled PlayerWON and is owned by US TV advertising company Simulmedia. It is designed to showcase video advertisements inside PC and console games.

    Speaking to Axios, Simulmedia EVP of gaming Dave Madden commented on the acceleration of free-to-play titles across console and PC, and claims that "over 90%" of players never spend money on them.

    Simulmedia has already run a pilot advertising campaign inside Hi Rez free-to-play title, Smite. Similar to mobile adverts, the player is given the option to watch a 15-30 second video in exchange for in-game rewards.

    The trial reported that 22% of players were "much more" likely to play a game with in-game ads if they received perks for doing so, with 11% of that total more likely to spend money inside the game.

    Simulmedia aims to launch in-game ads in around 12 more games by the end of the year.

    Fostul DICE LA devine Ripple Effect si se ocupa de ceva proiect mai mic legat de Battlefield 2042 si un joc neanuntat:

    Our ambition is to become a studio that excels at everything — not just making games but also the process of how we make them. We want to reach a super level of quality in everything we do, no matter how big or small. This philosophy applies to everything, from constantly refining our development process, to cultivating a positive company culture and growing a thriving community.

    “We’re so proud of our work as DICE LA and the DICE team will forever be a part of our DNA, but over the past eight years, we’ve developed our own culture and our own way of doing things,” says Christian Grass, GM of Ripple Effect Studios. “We’re excited to look towards the future, expand the team and establish our own identity.”

    In addition to overseeing Respawn Entertainment, Respawn founder Vince Zampella is also managing Ripple Effect. Together he and Christian are focused on bringing in an influx of talented developers, artists, and engineers to make our vision a reality. “The talent here has a great track record of producing high-quality titles, and the studio’s set to make even more incredible games in the future,” says Zampella. “With an amazing new campus coming to Los Angeles and remote positions available, now is a great time to consider joining us."

    We’re currently working on a player-inspired experience for Battlefield™ 2042 and starting work on a yet-to-be announced project.

    Tencent owns 8.75% and is the second-biggest shareholder in Sumo, which has 14 studios in five countries and released the video games including Hotshot Racing, Sackboy: A Big Adventure and WST Snooker last year.

    Sumo's boss Carl Cavers said he and co-founders Paul Porter and Darren Mills would reprise their roles.

    "The opportunity to work with Tencent is one we just couldn't miss," said Cavers, who founded the company 18 years ago.

    We are a new independent AAA game development studio founded by veterans of some of the industry's most recognizable and acclaimed creative teams, established to craft a new generation of narrative-driven, genre-defining experiences that will span both interactive and linear media. With a roster of award-winning talent and decades of combined experience, That’s No Moon and its debut project are backed by an unprecedented partnership and more than $100 million investment from Smilegate—creators of the blockbuster ‘CROSSFIRE’ franchise.
    That's No Moon
    Quote Originally Posted by GamesIndustry.biz

    The team at That's No Moon, a new Los Angeles-based developer that emerged from stealth today, chose the company moniker as a nod to a "great moment in entertainment that ignited people's imaginations and delivered something truly unexpected" -- because that's exactly what it hopes to build.

    "We wanted [the name] to be impactful, the start of something big," CEO Michael Mumbauer tells GamesIndustry.biz. "We want players to think about our narrative experiences long after the game credits roll and they put the controller down."

    Even so, he's talking about a moment in a story that revolutionised its industry -- but Mumbauer and his team sound no less ambitious when it comes to their plans for games. And when you see the collected works of its initial employees, it's easy to understand why.

    Mumbauer himself was previously head of PlayStation's Visual Arts group, having contributed to various titles from the Ratchet & Clank, God of War, and Uncharted series and even credits for assisting with Returnal and last year's Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us Part 2.

    Alongside him, he has veterans from studios such as Naughty Dog, Infinity Ward, Bungie, Electronic Arts and Sony Santa Monica, which was responsible for the 2018 God of War revival.

    That's No Moon's first title will be led by creative director Taylor Kurosaki, who previously served as narrative design lead at Naughty Dog and studio narrative director at Infinity Ward, and game director Jacob Minkoff, previously lead designer on The Last of Us -- and it's Left Behind DLC -- and design director for 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

    The studio has actually been operating for around six months and currently stands at just under 40 people, with a goal of reaching 100 by the end of 2022. It plans to specialise in AAA story-driven titles, with its first set to be a third-person action adventure, although its ambitions stretch beyond video games (more on that later).

    Do not expect a return to the old release cadence for Take-Two Interactive’s publishing labels like Rockstar Games. While a decade ago, Rockstar used to release one game a year, it has only released Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2 since 2013.

    “The development cycles for our core, immersive releases are still significant,” said Zelnick. “It takes some time to make what we hope will be the best titles in the business. Development cycles are not getting shorter for core, immersive releases. I wouldn’t necessarily expect them to.”

    “What has changed is between big releases we continue to engage consumers with add-on content and opportunities to engage in online versions of the game and instances of online multiplayer,” said Zelnick. “That’s what created recurrent consumer spending. But much more importantly, recurrent spending reflects consumer spending and engagement.”

    Inca ceva legat de Take-Two:
    The publisher also said its 2K label will announce a new franchise later this month, although it did not indicate if that was one of the delayed titles.
    "We're bringing 20 titles to market this year, and we expect to bring roughly that amount for the following two years," he says. "And we expect to set records again starting in fiscal '23."
