Robert Bowling Announces New Game Studio

Posted on April 23, 2012 AT 06:25pm

THE BUZZ: Robert Bowling—previously of Infinity Ward where he was a Creative Strategist on the Call of Duty series—has now announced the opening of his own game development studio, Robotoki.

EGM’s TAKE: When Bowling left Infinity Ward, we wondered what he was up to. At the time, it kind of sounded like he’d gotten burned out from the no doubt endless demands and pressure that working on a series like Call of Duty must bring with it. Bowling had said that he thought game developers should “reconnect to our roots”—on the heels of such a statement, this announcement isn’t too surprising.

“Robotoki is focused on being a developer development studio that just happens to make games,” Bowling told Gameinformer. “We are focused on our team first and everything else second, because I believe as an industry; we have a lot to learn on how to treat talent. While we continue to out stride film and music entertainment in other areas, we are falling severely behind in how to properly inspire and support our creative talent.”

As part of the announcement, Bowling revealed that Robotoki’s first project—to be officially unveiled at a later date—is planned for release on “next-gen consoles, PC, and mobile devices”.
