New studio Armature goes with EA

Metroid Prime team does a long-term deal

The primary team responsible for the Metroid Prime series has formed a new studio and reached out to execute a long-term deal with Electronic Arts. The new studio located in Austin, Texas will be called Armature and has already declared that they will be creating new intellectual properties with a return to the small core creative development framework that partners with strategic external developers.

However, the biggest news might be that from the starting gate no platform is “off limits” and this could see new titles from the studio span all of the major platforms, unlike the previous projects that they worked on which were only for a single platform.

While the creative idea of moving back to smaller development teams and exploiting the small independent studio model might sound great from the outside, it could be difficult for a smaller studio to compete with the larger studios in churning out big full scale titles that take advantage of all of the power available to leverage in today’s gaming consoles. Even though the studio is aligned with EA, it could be difficult for a small studio to compete.
