TiMi Studio Group has revealed Team Kaiju to the world, a new game developer that aims to make a AAA multiplayer first-person shooter that will be a "blockbuster" experience for shooter fans.
You might not be familiar with TiMi, but you've probably heard of some of the games it's released in the Western market. It gave birth to the world's first 10 billion dollar mobile game Arena of Valor and the wildly popular (and equally record-breaking) Call of Duty Mobile. Most recently, the company unleashed Pokemon Unite on the world and launched cross-play late last month.
It's rare that a game studio will do everything by itself, though. That's probably why Timi formed Team Kaiju, and this new game development endeavor has an ambitious mission: it wants to make a multiplayer first-person shooter on par with some of the biggest releases of the year.
TiMi's Team Kaiju Has Big Ambitions
Team Kaiju is working on an unannounced AAA multiplayer first-person shooter -- and they're targeting a multiplatform release, to boot. That's certainly an ambitious goal for this new endeavor, but Team Kaiju has the talent to make it happen.
Let's start with the studio lead: this company is being headed up by Halo 4's Lead Designer Scott Warner. He's joined by developers who have worked on other major franchises including Apex Legends, Battlefield, Destiny, and Halo (natch).
"We formed Team Kaiju to unite creative game makers who are ready to offer players new experiences," Warner said in a press release. "Gaming has yet to address all the player fantasies we could enjoy in an FPS game. We want to make something new, something players haven’t seen before - at a blockbuster scale. We know that it takes ambitious, creative game development and we’re building a studio to achieve it. And we’re inviting other devs who also want to create new things to join us."
What's even more impressive is that Team Kaiju is committing to a flexible remote work schedule for its employees just like the newly-launched game developer Possibility Space. We can officially add one more studio to the list of companies that probably have very tiny offices -- if they have offices at all.
The key thing we don't know, of course, is what kind of game Team Kaiju is working on. Whatever it may be, it looks like the first-person shooter genre is going to be getting a little more competition in the coming years.
What do you think of Team Kaiju? Do you think the new kid on the block can compete with the big boys and deliver a AAA-quality first-person shooter? Let us know in the comments below!
