Folks wondering what ex-devs of BioWare have been up to as of late will find that some have formed their own development studio named QC Games. The first title from this studio is a single-player, multiplayer, online, and co-op free-to-play RPG named Breach. This title is currently slated to hit PC via Steam Early Access and has no release date.
That’s right, a number of BioWare ex-devs have joined together to form QC Games. The Austin-based studio houses people like Dallas Dickinson (producer), Gabe Amatangelo (designer) and many more ex-BioWare devs.
According to an interview that website gamesindustry.biz struck up with QC Games, we learn that after the cancellation of a nearly completed action-RPG that debuted at Gamescom 2014, Shadow Realms, Dickinson and Amatangelo decided to make their own studio — QC Games.
Shadow Realms was a free-to-play multiplayer game that piqued EA’s interest when it was pitched, but after some thought and struggle, EA decided to ditch the whole thing.
According to QC Games, they believe they’re like the “Netflix shows you’re seeing at the moment.” Amatangelo went on to say that they’re like the “Altered Carbon of games… the PG Altered Carbon.” I think that answers what kind of content you can expect from them moving forward.
Anyway, now that the “PG Altered Carbon” of gaming has QC Games setup and they’re no longer under EA, what is their game Breach? Well, the official description has you covered:
“Modern Earth and Mythological Earth collide in Breach, a third person action RPG with fast-paced combat. Create your own character and choose from dozens of classes. Take your character on missions across the globe in Solo, Co-op, or Versus modes.”
Now, what does Breach have to offer gameplay wise? Well, the devs have you covered there too. The official announcement trailer can be seen below:
