Annapurna Interactive, the publisher of Outer Wilds, Sayonara Wild Hearts, and many more acclaimed games, has announced the formation of an internal development studio.There’s currently no word on the studio’s first project nor a name for the studio, but it is being formed in Los Angeles, California, with team members being sought for roles on the studio’s first project, including senior producer, game director, and more.“We’ve had the immense honor of working with some of the most talented independent game creators in the world,” Annapurna Interactive President Nathan Gary said. “Many of us came from an internal development background and are excited to make this a part of Annapurna Interactive moving forward. We can’t wait to share more about what’s to come—anything is possible.”
Annapurna first published What Remains of Edith Finch and Gorogoa in 2017, and has continued to build up its game library since then, with published games this year including If Found, I Am Dead, and PS5 launch game The Pathless.
