Three games industry veterans have founded Twin Suns Corp., a new game studio already working on a triple A, big-budget multi-platform game.
The founders include former Halo creative director Tim Longo, Jr., Hitman 3 executive producer Forest Swartout Large, and Gears of War producer Jeff Morris.
"Forming this company and team is about bringing incredible people together to collaborate and make uniquely creative and amazing action games," said Longo. "Twin Suns Corp is literally a dream team of expert talent from across the planet and I can't wait to work with all of them again."
Fifteen more veteran developers, with experience on Tomb Raider, Fallout, the Elder Scrolls and more will join the team over the course of the summer. Twin Suns plans to hire for more roles in the near future.
Venture capital firm Hiro Capital led investment in the new studio.
"I had the pleasure of working with Tim Longo on the Tomb Raider reboot before he went on to become Creative Director at 343 Industries to develop Halo 5," said Hiro Capital partner Ian Livingstone. "Tim is hugely talented and has assembled a fantastic team at Twin Suns. We are delighted to be partnering with Tim and his team and are incredibly excited by the potential of their creative vision and their ability to develop groundbreaking new titles in the AAA space."
