nDreams has launched a new virtual reality game studio led by mobile gaming veteran Chris White.

White is a former senior development lead at Electronic Arts (The Sims Social), Glu Mobile (Project Gotham), and Space Ape Games (Transformers: Earth Wars and Samurai Siege).

He will now lead a studio for live game development in ndreams. This second virtual reality company is nDreams Studio Orbital, which will focus on developing live games for virtual reality.

The new studio will be completely remote and nDreams is actively recruiting for several key roles that can be viewed on the nDreams website, White said in an interview with GamesBeat. He previously served at FitXR, a leading VR / AR fitness company.

“We are going to work on new VR titles and they are going to have a live game element,” White said in an interview with GamesBeat. “Hopefully, we can create titles that last for years and that players want to participate in for years to come. And that’s what we’re going to focus on. “

He said the new studio has a broad focus for now and will start hiring soon. The goal is to expand to about 25 people for the first project, depending on what the team chooses. White is the sole leader of the study so far.

White is a 20-year gaming veteran who has been focused on mobile devices for much of that time.

“What excites me about virtual reality is that it has the potential for similar growth as you see more and more players involved in the industry,” he said. “Technology advances by leaps and bounds year after year and there is still a lot to do in terms of amazing games and products that we can launch. So from my perspective, there are a lot of opportunities there. “

nDreams has had some successes in virtual reality. Phantom: Covert Ops, Far Cry VR: Dive into Insanity and Fracked have secured nDreams’ position as a leader in virtual reality games.

“At Farnborough, we are already working on several titles,” said Tomas Gillo, director of development for nDreams, in an interview with GamesBeat. “One of the reasons for this is to provide flexibility in terms of how people work. We can attract talent from around the world by being completely remote. Remote work is not for everyone. Some people still want to work face to face and nDreams can now offer both. “

Increasing the capacity to offer more virtual reality games, nDreams Studio Orbital will allow nDreams to develop a more diverse portfolio of games in a variety of ways to play. The study will benefit from the knowledge, technologies and infrastructure shared with nDreams headquarters in Farnborough, England.

“The new study is completely virtual reality,” White said. “We have a number of things going on at the Farnborough office, which is now coming out of the lockdown and moving towards a hybrid solution. But all the development staff for the new studio will be distributed and remote. “

Regarding the future of virtual reality, White said, “We will see a broader range of game genres and patterns to meet growth,” from golf titles to music games.
