BioShock names found new studio

Three former 2K developers — Steve Gaynor, Johnnemann Nordhagen, Karla Zimonja — have went off on their own to form The Fullbright Company, and with a noble goal no less: to “make a great game.”

The trio previously worked on Bioshock 2, its Minerva’s Den DLC, as well as the upcoming Bioshock Infinite and XCOM.

Says Gaynor of the venture: “A memorable experience that you’ll be drawn into, and keep thinking about after the game’s turned off, and want to come back to again someday. An experience that gets away from the constraints of ossified game genres, while relying on what we’re good at as a team: creating immersive places to inhabit, and a deep, personal story to explore at your own pace. A nonviolent game in an unfantastical locale; an experience that not many games provide, built out of techniques that only video games can employ.”

That’s some vagueness, right there. We’ll have to stay tuned for something more specific; updates should arrive “soon.”
