As the Xbox 720 gets closer to arriving, games that are being developed for consoles are going to be for the Xbox 720 and other next-generation systems, and the co-founder of EA is heading this new vision.
According to a press release sent to Examiner.com yesterday, Joseph Ybarra, who is a co-founder of the gaming giant EA, has opened a new studio called Joe Got Game.
Ybarra talked about how his past experiences have influenced the direction his new studio will go in.
"Over the years, I had the opportunity to work with major publishers and a host of really talented people, and, in doing so, I evolved my own processes for crafting and distributing games.
"I felt the need at this point in my career to leverage all that I’ve learned, and build a new studio from the ground up with a new kind of focus on the gamer experience, and to make that one of excitement, wonder and social relevance.
"This represents a different approach than I had ever taken before, but one I think will result in some great things,” Ybarra said.
Ybarra then talked about how their upcoming project will take advantage of new technologies.
"We’re extremely excited about how the company and the team have come together, and we’re already planning a series of connected titles that will really take advantage of the tools and techniques at our disposal.
"We believe Joe Got Game represents a real turning point in this industry relative to how games are conceived, built, delivered and enjoyed," Ybarra said.
