Demiurge Studios & Creat Studios Form Strategic Partnership

by Rainier on June 6, 2007 @ 1:03 p.m. PDT

Independent developers Demiurge Studios (worked on titles such as Brothers in Arms, Titan Quest) and Creat Studios announced a complementary strategic partnership that provides publishers an established, international development team capable of bringing titles to any and all platforms.

“With gaming audiences fragmented across seven major platforms, next-generation game development is more complex than ever,” said Al Reed, Director of Development for Demiurge Studios. “But publishers can contact Demiurge and Creat and know that our partnership has the full capabilities necessary to bring their product to market.”

The newly-announced partnership represents a unique, innovative collaboration between two independent developers, pairing Demiurge’s extensive experience with next-gen consoles and AAA game brands with Creat’s cross-platform background and high-quality offshore development. Demiurge and Creat’s new model eliminates the risks involved with unproven offshore developer-publisher relationships and presents a turnkey, multiplatform development option for top-tier brands and original IP.

"We are excited to form a strategic partnership with Demiurge, who are well known and respected in the industry for their expertise with next-gen technology on AAA brands like Brothers in Arms and Medal of Honor,” said Vlad Starzhevsky, CEO of Creat Studios. “This partnership will marry that expertise with Creat's cross-platform capabilities, quality standards and reputation for on-time, turnkey development."

Demiurge and Creat are among the leading independent developers in the flourishing Boston-area game community. Their new partnership is expected to bring even more big-name titles to the region, confirming Boston as a central location for next-generation game development in North America.
