A new independent studio, and a new IP

Casey Hudson, previously general manager at BioWare, has announced a new studio today. Humanoid Studios is a new independent company, and it will be working on an all-new IP.

Hudson shared the announcement on Twitter, saying he’s been “working with some colleagues on something awesome.” The company has a number of job openings on its site, including Sr. Creative Director, Gameplay Designer, and Level Designer positions.

It’ll be interesting to see what this team ends up creating, as it isn’t the only ex-BioWare staff working on new ventures. Archetype Entertainment was also formed around former BioWare devs, and is currently working on its own project.

Hudson left BioWare last year alongside long-time Dragon Age lead Mark Darrah, with his departure leaving the door open for the “next generation of studio leaders.” With both a new Dragon Age and Mass Effect in the pipeline, BioWare certainly still has some big projects ahead of it as well.
