For those who have been following the development of Human Element ever since Robotoki announced its existence in 2012, there's some pretty disappointing news coming your way this evening. Robert Bowling, the former Call of Duty creative strategist, has announced that his studio, Robotoki is closing down.
Human Element is one game that I've been keeping my eye on for some time, not that there's a lot to keep me occupied as the developers have been pretty quiet about the game, as well as revealing and then cancelling releases and partnerships with publishers. At The Game Awards 2014 we were finally given something more solid, a gameplay trailer which showed the game in action, and it looks fantastic, I really can't wait for this.
There are some huge changes afoot at Indie game studio, Robotoki, which was founded by ex-Infinity Ward developer, Robert Bowling. Gamasutra reveals the developer has decided to end the partnership between the developer and publisher Nexon coming to a mutual end due to Robotoki deciding to release their upcoming survival game Human Element as a premium title and not a free-to-play affair as previously planned.
Last week Nexon announced via Business Wire that it has partnered with Robotoki to bring Human Element to the PC, worldwide, when it launches in the later part of 2015. This news follows that of Nexon, a Korean publisher headquartered in Tokyo, had taken Robotoki on as a strategic partner for an undisclosed sum.
Last week, ex Infinity Ward developer and founder of Robotoki, Robert Bowling, announced that they've acquired a licencing deal with CryEngine who will be using state-of-the-art development tool to bring their upcoming game Human Element to PC and Consoles which is set for release some time in 2015.
The Adventures of Dash are one of the many projects that ex-Call of Duty developer, Robert Bowling has up his sleeve, or at least had up his sleeve. News came in via the game's Kickstarter that it didn't manage to raise the $400,000 that they required to put the game fully into development.
