Playground Games’ upcoming RPG—rumored to be Fable—will soon have a lot of new talent working on it from some of the biggest and best companies in the business.
GamesIndustry.biz reports that the team at Playground has hired talent from EA Motive, BioWare, Rocksteady, Guerrilla Games, and Ninja Theory for its second studio that recently opened up. These developers have worked on some of the most notable franchises out there like Mass Effect and Star Wars Battlefront along with acclaimed new IP like Horizon Zero Dawn and Hellblade.
At E3 2018, Microsoft announced that it had acquired five additional studios, one of which being Forza Horizon developer Playground Games. With Playground now under Microsoft’s belt, the studio should receive more funding and support to make the best games possible.
Playground previously hired developers who worked on Grand Theft Auto V, Metal Gear Solid V, and Hellblade last year to help with the RPG’s development.
