Resident Evil Producer Opens New Studio, Working On New IP To “Impress The World”

Resident Evil producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi has started a new studio that is building a new IP that aims to “impress the whole world.” NetEase Games announced that they have opened a new developer store in Japan called GPTRACK50 with the hope of creating a “entertainment concept” that will appeal to the world.

Kobayashi is also known for producing games in the Capcom franchise such as Devil May Cry and Dragon’s Dogma. The new studio will be staffed by “experienced professionals” from games, film and television.

NetEase says its goal is to build “original IPs that can impress the world.”

“The studio strives to build on original game content and expand its reach from just games to entertaining series and movies,” the company said.

GPTRACK50 will be an internal studio wholly owned by NetEase Games. It will focus primarily on PC and console games to begin with with the aim of “growing into a base with a global media portfolio.” The newly established developer doesn’t have any announced projects yet.

NetEase has recently made a transformation in the world of video games. Earlier this year, the company acquired Heavy Rain studio Quantic Dream and starting a new studio with the creator of the Yakuza series. NetEase also sponsor a new game from developer Destiny Bungie.

Kobayashi spent more than 27 years at Capcom, where he worked on the original Resident Evil and its many sequels, as well as several other Capcom franchises in the world of video games and anime.
