Call us unimpressed by today’s news but we saw that coming. After leaving Infinity Ward, Robert Bowling decided to open his own gaming studio that is called Robotoki Studios. Robotoki’s first project, which will be revealed later this year, is slated for release on next-gen consoles, PC, and mobile devices (iOS, Tablet, Android). Now we don’t know how this new title will translate to so many different devices, so we can safely assume that it will be a – somewhat – casual game.
In his first interview as the head of Robotoki with GameInformer, Bowling said:
“As a developer, our focus is on creating a universe first, experiences second, and game mechanics last. With focus being on universe, we aim to create experiences that transcend platforms and genres and allow our players to connect to our world, their characters, and gameplay via any medium (console, PC, or mobile).”
Bowling added that Robotoki is self-funded for the time being and that the company is focused on being a developer development studio that just happens to make games.
“We are focused on our team first and everything else second, because I believe as an industry; we have a lot to learn on how to treat talent. While we continue to out stride film and music entertainment in other areas, we are falling severely behind in how to properly inspire and support our creative talent.”
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
