Default Description

Finally, some news on Elsewhere Entertainment that didn’t come from the rumor mill. Activision’s latest studio, a.k.a. the world’s best-kept secret until yesterday, has assembled a dream team of gaming veterans. Think The Avengers, but with more coding and fewer spandex costumes.

After months of operation under a cloak of secrecy, Elsewhere Entertainment, a new studio under the giant umbrella of Activision, has finally unveiled its high-powered leadership team. The studio, which has been around since May 2022, managed to stay under the radar, even recruiting its staff under the guise of Infinity Ward Poland while working on an ambitious Open World Action RPG.

At the helm as Game Director is Michał Madej, the creative mastermind known for his work on legendary titles like the original The Witcher, Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, Dead Island, Far Cry 3, and Crash Bandicoot 4. Madej’s diverse portfolio promises a rich blend of storytelling and action-packed gameplay.

The visual artistic direction of Elsewhere Entertainment will be led by Erik Persson. Persson has a strong background as an artist on the Battlefield series starting from the third installment. Adding to his impressive resume, he also spent two years at The Initiative working on the reboot of Perfect Dark. His extensive experience in creating immersive and visually striking environments will undoubtedly be a cornerstone of the studio's projects.

Megan Starks takes on the role of Lead Narrative Designer. Starks comes from Obsidian Entertainment, where she contributed to the narrative design of games like Tyranny, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, and The Outer Worlds. Known for her knack for storytelling and deep narrative structure, Starks’ involvement signals a rich, story-driven experience in Elsewhere Entertainment's upcoming projects.

As more details emerge about Elsewhere Entertainment and its projects, the gaming community is undoubtedly eager to see what this powerhouse team will bring to the table. With their combined expertise, it's clear that this studio has the potential to craft some truly groundbreaking experiences.
