More and more people are totally turning to virtual reality, and this is the case of the founders of Drifter Entertainment, a new company whose objective is to bring e-sports to the virtual world.
Drifter Entertainment it has been founded by Ray Davis, who was director-general of Unreal Engine 4 and CTO of Microsoft in charge of Hololens; Kenneth Scott, a former art director on AAA titles such as Doom 3, Halo 4, and most recently leading a team of developers at Oculus; and Brian Murphy, creative director and designer at Microsoft who helped in the development and launch of platforms like Xbox One and Hololens.
“Virtual reality represents a unique opportunity to create a whole new generation of gaming experiences to fully immerse ourselves. We are combining our experience in creating incredibly polished games, together with our early experience with virtual reality to create really amazing and fun games for all emerging platforms,” says Davis.
They haven’t announced any titles at the moment, but Murphy notes: “The material we’ve been working on these past few months has us all more excited than we’ve ever been with anything else we’ve worked on. We can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve been doing.”
