NetEase has announced that it has opened a new studio called Anchor Point that will be led by the former lead designer on Remedy Entertainment’s Control, Paul Ehreth.

The details:

  • Chinese publisher NetEase has confirmed the opening of Anchor Point, with the studio focused on creating "action-adventure experiences that take risks and journey deep into uncharted territory." The studio's first project is unknown, but it is said to be "dedicated to developing action-adventure games for console and PC that push the boundaries of entertainment and bring elements of surprise into the gameplay," with an "interconnected world that will expand beyond games and reach into other mediums.”
  • Ehreth has over 20 years of industry experience, including roles as campaign director for Halo 4 and 5, lead designer on Control, and member of the Alan Wake 2 leadership team. Pere Torrents, the studio's head of operations, will be joining him, as will other colleagues with "decades of combined experience in the industry," who have worked on major titles such as Halo, Ghost of Tsushima, Red Dead Redemption 2, and The Division.
  • The studio is planning on hiring up to 100 people across multiple departments including game art, development, and design. It has offices located in Barcelona and Seattle, with positions being offered as on-site, hybrid, or fully remote opportunities.
