Quantum Break Dev Branching Out Into Multiplayer Games
Remedy exploring co-op multiplayer experiences.
Quantum Break and Alan Wake developer Remedy Entertainment will be making multiplayer games in the coming days. Though single-player is still important, the studio is interested in challenging itself to achieve more.
A post by game director Mikael Kasurinen and creative director Sam Lake stated that, “We want to challenge ourselves to find ways to also expand these elements to include cooperative multiplayer.
“We will always strive to be the best storytellers we possibly can, and we want these stories to be shared and elevated through players’ cooperation. We believe that a multiplayer experience combined with Remedy’s unique world-building provides an exceptional environment for that.”
The developer currently has numerous “future projects” that will have multiplayer in some form and these will be developed using the Northlight engine. It’s currently hiring for a lead network programmer to help in “developing and shaping the multiplayer technology and features of Northlight.”
