Fun Dog Studios Is A New Studio By Former Horizon: Zero Dawn, Doom And The Witcher 3 Devs Working On A New Survival/Horror Shooter

The Forever Winter is a tactical survival/horror shooter where squads must fight to survive under the shadow of terrifying and gargantuan war machines.

Fun Dog Studios, an independent studio formed by key figures on the development of huge games like Horizon: Zero DawnDOOM Eternal, Killzone, HawkenThe Witcher 3Mass Effect and more, today announced they have come together to form this new venture.

The studio is one-hundred-percent employee owned, fully creatively independent, and committed to defying convention, challenging players, and taking big risks. 

The studio’s first game, The Forever Winter, is a tactical survival-horror shooter where squads must fight to survive under the shadow of terrifying and gargantuan war machines.

This is personal to us. We’ve worked on some of the most successful games ever, and miss the days when the industry flourished with new experimentation, new stories, new gameplay, and new voices; so we formed our own company where we could be free to do that, said Miles Williams, CEO and Creative Director of Fun Dog Studios. “As independents we’re free to forge our own path to make games we all can’t wait to play ourselves. We’re not chasing the hot new trend, we’re trying to bring back things that we’ve felt the industry has lost. Think new IP, less plastic.”

Formed in 2022, Fun Dog Studios has grown to 30 full-time game developers and is fully remote. From a design perspective, Fun Dog Studios believes gaming needs to be harder to be fun, worth your time and your money. They’re not here to make games for everyone, and refuse  to make their games easier or water down our vision of “fear becoming fun.” Because no one tells stories about beating the boss on their first try.
