Mr. Disrespect, the mustache wielding streamer has joined forces with Robert Bowling, the Call of Duty creative strategist, and Quinn Delhoyo, the Halo 5 multiplayer designer to launch a new studio called Midnight Society, aiming to create the best, most community-focused online multiplayer experience ever.
At this point in the process, the studio has released no specifics about what they are working on. Nevertheless, as you might expect of a project led by Dr. Disrespect, there are plenty of hints of the future. This freelance team of veteran AAA talent lives and breathes PVP multiplayer games, and its unique publishing studio and publishing model have been in development for a decade.
Taking the breathlessness out of Midnight Society, one priority is reaching out to influencers and communities earlier in the game development process. The studio announces that it prioritizes involving communities and influencers much earlier in the game development process than usual. The presence of Beahm might seem like stunt casting in the video game industry, but you should remember that before becoming the man who can grow a mustache, he worked as a community manager and designer for Sledgehammer Games on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Advanced Warfare.In my experience as a player, streamer, and former game developer. He has stated that he has dreamed of creating games the entire communities can get behind from day one. It’s my vision to create games that defy one-and-done publishing models and reward all those fans and influencers who make them a success.
The project Midnight Society is currently looking to hire a community manager, designers, engineers, artists, and more-all of whom can work remotely, which is nice. The company is on the rise. According to Midnight Society’s website, it describes itself as an “AAA studio,” and most of its job listings require at least five years’ experience in big-budget game development. Dr. Disrespect’s new studio can be followed on Twitter and Discord if you’re not quite at that stage in your professional development.
