CD Projekt and 2K vets create new studio AntiStatic Studios

Former staff from the likes of CD Projekt and 2K vets have created a brand new games company.

As reported by Game Developer, this new venture is called AntiStatic Studios and is staffed by vets from around the industry and the world. It was co-founded back in August 2021 by Kris Teper, who is the outfit's CEO and creative director.

He has previously worked at the likes of People Can Fly, Epic Games, 2K and Microsoft, and has contributed to titles including Gears of War, Borderlands and the currently in-development BioShock game.

AntiStatic Studios' other co-founders are Funcom veteran Michal Koltun and Digital Dragons mentor Maciej Miksztal.

Staff currently at AntiStatic include writer Lukasz Ludkowski, formerly of CD Projekt; Offworld Industries alum Piotr Łukasik and ex-Other Ocean Interactive community manager Gabriel Nordholm,

The company is currently working on a PvE co-op tactical shooter called Hornet.

"Antistatic is an emerging studio formed by industry veterans," the developer's website said.

"We create dark, atmospheric co-op games fueled by emergent gameplay and immersive sim design philosophy, where possibilities extend beyond the conventions of traditional video games.

"We are not chained by a complicated corporate structure; we are a group of highly passionate game developers who want to do what they love in a space that empowers them.

"We believe that excellence comes from creative freedom and unified goals.

"What we aim for is an unforgettable gaming experience that we can share with you - the most important part of this equation - the players."CD Projekt and 2K vets create new studio AntiStatic Studios
