Activision has announced the formation of Elsewhere Entertainment, a new studio that is currently focused on creating what the company behind the Call of Duty series has described as a new narrative-based and genre-defining AAA franchise, composed of industry veterans and other employees headquartered in Warsaw, Poland, with additional resources in the U.S. The news comes a week after Activision Blizzard’s parent company and owner, Microsoft, shut down several of its Xbox game studios, including Redfall developer Arkane Austin and Hi-Fi Rush developer Tango Gameworks.

Some of the games that Elsewhere’s staff have worked on include:

  • The Last of Us
  • Uncharted
  • The Witcher
  • Cyberpunk
  • Destiny
  • Tom Clancy’s The Division
  • Far Cry

Activision on its new studio:

Built from the ground up, Elsewhere Entertainment is a premier and standalone studio dedicated to establishing an environment that inspires bold and diverse ideas. The team’s underlying mission encourages everyone to explore and collaborate creatively to craft a franchise with an enduring legacy that resonates far beyond games.

The new studio has full access to Activision’s resources and tools as it continues to increase production and development. Elsewhere is opening its search for best-in-class talent from across the industry and around the world to help create a state-of-the-art and next generation gaming experience.
