Not even a fortnight since CastAR’s last high-profile hires and they’re at it again, this time hiring former Eat Sleep Play developers to join the team at its first-party development studio in Salt Lake City, Utah.
CastAR’s head-mounted display is going to need content when it launches in 2017 and this latest selection of hires looks to be a step towards ensuring this. They’re hiring Scott Campbell, an industry veteran who founded the studio and he’ll be bringing some of his team across with him, although it’s not yet disclosed how many people will be joining him at CastAR’s first party studio to develop AR games.
Eat Sleep Play are perhaps best known for their work with Sony’s Twisted Metal series, although they did release Ice Age Arctic Blast for Android and iOS in July this year.
We’ve previously reported on CastAR hiring several former Disney Infinity developers after The Walt Disney Company shut the game down and most recently Peter Dille, Mel Heydari and Arnie Sen for top roles at the company.
“Eat Sleep Play had a 20-year track record of pleasing gamers by contributing to countless top rated console and mobile franchises, from Twisted Metal to Warhawk and more and we are thrilled to have their experienced developers join the CastAR Salt Lake City team,” Said Steve Parkis, the CastAR president and chief operating officer, in a statement. “The continued expansion of our development staff brings together an all-star content creation team focused on developing augmented reality experiences and increases our momentum towards launching the first mass-market augmented reality gaming platform.”
