Dr Disrespect Announces New Game Studio With Ex Halo And COD Developers

Guy “Dr Disrespect” Beahm has announced that he’s creating a new AAA game studio by the name of Midnight Society.

The announcement was made on Twitter, where a teaser video was posted on a new account for the studio. Dr Disrespect will be heading the studio alongside two industry veterans, Robert Bowling and Quinn DelHoyo.

Bowling, known as fourzerotwo, was a creative strategist and community manager at Infinity Ward. He’ll be the studio head at Midnight Society. Quinn DelHoyo is known for his work on the Halo franchise at 343 Industries, and he’ll be the new studio’s creative director.

According to the studio, its first game is going to be a PVP multiplayer title developed using Unreal Engine 5. Of course, we shouldn’t have expected anything else from Dr Disrespect, especially with the people he’s brought on board.

The studio put out statement that says, “We flip the tables on the traditional video game development model and embrace the ‘Day Zero Community’. That means including our players – yes, you – from the earliest most inception.

“That could be testing reload times and recoil patterns in a firing range or jumping in for the first-ever PVP sessions. No more ‘I hope this game will be good’. Be there when your voice can actually make an impact because we want to hear it. Really.”

Sounds promising, but it remains to be seen whether the game this studio creates will be able to compete with other big PVP hits. We’ll have to wait and see what they can cook up.
