InXile Entertainment, one of Microsoft‘s first-party studios, hired Dean Rymer, developer of Mass Effect and God of War.
Microsoft continues to satisfy its customers because of the services it offers, even though it has outperformed its special game understanding in the current generation. Towards the end of this generation, the brand has purchased or built many companies that will make their own games. These studios started to make a strong preparation for the next generation by hiring successful developers from many game companies.
God of War developer joins Microsoft’s first-party studio
InXile Entertainment, the studio that Microsoft joined to the first party in 2018, was founded in 2002 by Brian Fargo, one of the creators of the original Fallout game. In 2013, the firm launched the sequel to 1988, Wasteland, which Brian Fargo previously produced. InXile, purchased by Microsoft in 2018, is currently running on Wasteland 3.
According to a recent report, previously dealing with the Mass Effect series under the roof of Bioware; Dean Rymer, who also developed God of War with Santa Monica, joined InXile Entertainment. Rymer, who has not yet explained which game he is working on, is thought to be working on an unannounced project. There are rumors circulating that the game in question is a third-person role-playing game expected to be announced soon.
