Deck Nine Games, the developers behind Life Is Strange: Before The Storm, recently announced their continued external development partnership with influential games company, Square Enix.
The partnership solidifies the favorable trust the Deck Nine and Square Enix have formed with each other. Though no details were provided about the partnership itself, one interesting takeaway is the hint at a brand new game being created by the two companies. As stated by Lee Singleton, the Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios, “The partnership with Deck Nine has been a huge success. The opportunity to work with Deck Nine on another game was an easy decision, although we’re keeping the project details under wraps for now.”
Rounding off the press release is the news that Deck Nine is also aiming to expand its team, announcing a brand-new Creative Director role is now available at the studio. Deck Nine Games also announced openings for Unreal Programmers, Character Artists, and additional help for its full performance in-house motion capture studio are available for those interested in the opportunity.
