NetEase Games Announces Canadian-Based Bad Brain Game Studios

NetEase Games revealed that they will be working with Bad Brain Game Studios for a series of new games as a new partnered studio.

NetEase Games has introduced a brand new studio they'll be working with for future titles with the Canadian-based Bad Brain Game Studios. This is a brand new game studio that will be located in two different locations ( Toronto, Ontario and Montreal, Quebec), as the company is working to make more of a global presence with partnered studios. There wasn't much revealed about what the company would be working on, beyond the short one-liner in the press release saying they were developing "an ambitious new franchise based on a story-driven, action-adventure game." The game will apparently be an open-world, multi-platform experience, as they are creating it using Unreal Engine 5. Taking inspiration from cult '80s movies with a dash of adventure and horror. We got a couple of quotes about the new studio for you below.
