TiMi Studio Group, a division of technology giant Tencent, recently launched a new gaming studio in Washington State. TiMi Seattle will serve as the organization’s newest AAA video game developer.
Last year, TiMi hired gaming industry veterans Scott Warner and Rosi Zagorcheva, who have already built up a team of 25 employees. Their office is scheduled to open later this year in Bellevue, Washington.
“We’re working on a first-person shooter, competitive game, live service, with a lot of people assembled who have made those games for quite some time,” Warner said. “We are concentrating on PC and console for now. But ultimately, we want our game to be played on as many platforms as it can be.”
TiMi Seattle will work on several multi-platform AAA games. According to Scott Warner, the team has also begun developing an original game that won’t be revealed until later this year.
