Midnight Society is a new AAA game studio founded by Dr Disrespect, Robert Bowling (Call of Duty), and Quinn DelHoyo (Halo, Gears of War) – we’re focused on delivering the best, most community-focused, online PVP multiplayer experience the world has ever seen and it all starts TODAY.
The new title is being built from the ground up on Unreal Engine 5 and will be made open to a ‘Day-Zero Community’ and major content creators from the earliest most iterations. We want YOUR hands-on experience at all stages of development to drive feature prioritization, pivotal design decisions, and fuel innovation in the shooter genre.
“Our players are the lifeblood of our games, and so often games get designed in a bubble, with few touchpoints for the players to help shape the final product before it’s too late. Our approach is completely open and focused on building experiences that evolve with our players.”— Robert Bowling
Midnight Society is turning tables upside down in the gaming industry — building a new kind of game studio and publishing model over a decade in the making. Bowling and Beahm struck up a friendship while working on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and over the years, have often discussed ways to improve the video game development process. DelHoyo, meanwhile, met Bowling while designing classic levels and weapons for Gears of War. As the years passed and his talents led him to help shape the Halo series, the two friends continued to look for opportunities to create iconic worlds of their own.
“As a long-time player, streamer, and former game developer myself, I’ve often dreamed of creating awesome titles that entire communities can get behind from day one. My vision is to make games that defy the one-and-done publishing model and reward all those fans and influencers who make them a success. I’m so excited to show everyone what we have planned.”— Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm
Midnight Society knows that the gaming community has grown and evolved to include influencers and audiences from all walks of life. In this new approach to game development, the studio will transform hopeful ideas into proofs of concept by including communities and influencers much earlier in the development process.
“When you help create as many game experiences as I have – and played as many games as I have- you know that the community is everything.
Joining Midnight Society is the beginning of an exciting new chapter for me and the game industry as a whole. My imagination is already on overdrive thinking of all the possibilities.”— Quinn DelHoyo
We’ve put together a killer team of veteran AAA talent that lives, breaths, and sleeps in the realm of PVP multiplayer. Now it’s time to grow that team even further, we have several key hires soon to be announced, and we’re looking to add more names to that list.
