Dr Disrespect Reveals Game Studio, Midnight Society
Dr Disrespect’s tease of what Midnight Society has been unveiled – a AAA game studio! Co-run by Dr Disrespect, Robert Bowling (Call of Duty), and Quinn Del Hoyo, they’re aiming to push game development into an entirely new realm. Earlier this year, we saw hints and teases of what this could lead up to. In August, he offered a “life-changing opportunity” and before that, we saw hints of what his upcoming game could be. Midnight Society is real and Dr Disrespect dropped it on the whole world today. But what can we expect?
Day Zero Community
What was teased originally on Twitter has become reality. The Twitter account itself has just a brief teaser with an awesome music track, but Dr Disrespect’s Midnight Society website has so much more interesting information on it. The philosophy they’re following is a “Day Zero Community” mentality. They want the players onboard at the earliest possible time. Whether it’s “testing reload times and recoil patterns in a firing range or jumping in for the first-ever PVP sessions.”
So many PVP games drop and ultimately disappoint the players. If the majority of the fanbase is speaking up about what they want to see, and get to have feedback at every stage of a game, that could be something entirely new and exciting in the world of PVP. We could have a major esports hit coming from the Two-Time himself and his co-founders.
Guy “Dr Disrespect” Beahm spoke about this on the Midnight Society website:
“As a long-time player, streamer, and former game developer myself, I’ve often dreamed of creating awesome titles that entire communities can get behind from day one. My vision is to make games that defy the one-and-done publishing model and reward all those fans and influencers who make them a success. I’m so excited to show everyone what we have planned.”
Dr Disrespect and Robert Bowling began a friendship while working on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and according to the site, have been talking about improving game dev for years. Del Hoyo met Bowling during working on levels and weapons for Gears of War.Midnight Society is trying a whole new approach to game development, and Dr Disrespect, Bowling and Del Hoyo are at the forefront of it. According to the site, they’ve put together a crew of veteran AAA talent that thrives in the PVP community. Perhaps that vertical Battle Royale game Dr Disrespect teased isn’t outside of the realm of possibility. It honestly sounds interesting to see the players and influencers have so much input on upcoming titles from a game studio. Several names have already been revealed on the website. We don’t have more information than this for now, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled. As more about future projects and plans come to light from Midnight Society and Dr Disrespect, we’ll keep you updated.
