Driveclub and MotorStorm Creators Reveal Wushu Studios

Published

Driveclub and MotorStorm have been two of Sony’s most influential racing franchises in recent memory, outside of Gran Turismo.
The developers behind them have banded together to form a new game
studio called Wushu Studios.  Some of its talent consists ofstudio
founder Alan McDermott (former Evolution Studios, PlayStation), design
director Nigel Kershaw (former Evolution Studios, PlayStation, Deep
Silver, Revolution Software), and art director Stuart Trevor (former
Evolution Studios, PlayStation).
Surprisingly, Wushu Studios’
first effort will not be a racing game. Instead, it’s a brand new IP set
in the sci-fi genre. “[W]e can confirm that prototyping began in
September 2017 using Unreal Engine 4,” the studio claimed in a prepared
statement.

“Our core team at Wushu have worked together closely on
numerous projects over the years so there was no downtime in figuring
out how to work together, we just fell straight into a groove kicking
around game ideas that appealed to us as players and developers”,
said studio lead McDermott.
“We firmly believed in the idea that
our initial concepts needed to be gamepad experiences as quickly as
possible, so we turned to Unreal Engine for it’s amazing rapid
prototyping capabilities. This approach has helped us figure out which
of our concepts would allow us to flex our creative muscle most. It’s
definitely not what people will be expecting to see from us; it’s
absolutely not a racing game!”

Operating out of Liverpool,
McDermott confirmed that the team is currently self-funded but is open
to partnering with other companies as development progresses on its
maiden title.
“The company is currently self-funded and our 11
strong team are working towards sharing our new IP with potential
partners at GDC in San Francisco in March,” McDermott tells Gadgets 360.

“Whilst
we’re open to any and all discussions that could help us realize our
vision for the game, our current objective is to team up with a partner
that can not only provide additional funding for development, but that
also has experience and established profile in the industry.”
