Former Motorstorm and Driveclub Devs Found Wushu Studios to Create New IP

  • Wushu Studio

Wushu Studios is made up of former developers from Evolution Studios and Deep Silver, and they're already teasing their first project. Aiming to move away from AAA title development, he team instead wants to offer titles with interesting mechanics, unique concepts and refreshing gameplay. Now there are a total of 11 developers working at the studio and their first project, which began prototyping in September 2017, is still early in development utilizing Unreal Engine 4. The company is now beavering away on its first effort, a science fiction-flavored game that is looking to take an "unexpected turn" on the genre.

If you loved Motorstorm and Driveclub, then the formation of a new studio in the United Kingdom may be of interest to you - though intriguingly, the new firm says its first offering won't be a driving game.

The studio has a total of eleven people at the moment, most (or all) of whom have worked closely together in some capacity before and, as McDermott put it, "just fell straight into a groove kicking around game ideas that appealed to us as players and developers".

"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 incredible rapid prototyping capabilities", said McDermott.


Little else has been revealed about Wushu's IP at this time, but McDermott thinks it may surprise those familiar with the team's past work at Evolution, adding, "It's definitely not what people will be expecting to see from us". Alex Figini, a former senior BioWare concept artist, has also collaborated with the studio on the project.

After a tricky few years for United Kingdom developers, we're seeing a rise in new production houses springing up out of the still-warm ashes of triple-A studios in the UK.

At the moment, we don't know much more about the game the team at Wushu is working on, including platforms and release window, but we'll be sure to keep an eye on their work.
