United Front Games ex-Black Box teaming with Acti for new Action IP


United Front Games, a studio that was formed in the summer of 2007 by the original founders of Black Box Games, have announced, via their official site, they are developing an action-based game set in Hong Kong for Activision.

The staff of United Front Games consists of ex-staff from multiple studios, including the likes of  Electronic Arts, Radical Entertainment, Black Box Games, Rockstar, Action Pants, Propaganda Games and Next Level Games, so it goes with saying that it should be interesting to see what they come up with.

Over the past two decades our core team has led development of some groundbreaking games, so we have enormous expectations of ourselves,” said Stefan Wessels, United Front Games’ General Manager. “We have assembled industry talent from around the world, who have worked in senior positions on renowned titles such as the Need for Speed series, SKATE, Bully, Scarface, Godfather, Hulk, Spore and the NHL Sports franchise.

We are honored to be working with Activision,” added Stephen van der Mescht, Executive Producer. “It’s exciting to see so much talent come together to unite this new studio and deliver our best work ever.
