Fantasy Flight Games, boardgame creators who publish games such as XCOM, X-Wing Miniatures, and Arkham Horror, are opening a videogame studio.
This studio will be named Fantasy Flight Interactive which will be helmed by Tim Gerritsen. Tim Gerritsen previously was the director of business development at Human Head, developers of 2006’s Prey. Tim Gerritsen went on to say that “We’re incredibly excited to be bringing Fantasy Flight Games’ best game properties to life as amazing video game experiences”.
Christian T. Petersen, Founder of Fantasy Flight Games said of the launch “We didn’t create a new company just to translate board games into digital games. We’re focused on the bigger picture of the experiences our fans can have on new platforms, and this will take our brands in new directions”.
