VentureBeat is reporting that Vince Zampella has teamed with Larry Pacey to create a new studio dedicated to mobile gaming called Nuclear Division. Zameplla will continue to be the Head of Respawn Entertainment working on Titanfall, but he will also take on a role as investor, adviser, and board member.
In an exclusive interview with GamesBeat, Zampella and Pacey said they are forming a new mobile gaming platform company in order to test the waters for some new ideas in game development. It’s a big deal, since one of the game industry’s most talented console game makers is recognizing the value of the fast-growing mobile gaming business
“There is this whole other marketplace in mobile that can take advantage of innovative creative content,” Pacey said. “The two of us are starting a new venture to create this.”
But mobile is growing so fast, it’s “silly to ignore,” Zampella said. “It’s a device that I play on because I always have it with me,” he said. “It always connected. You’re engaged with it. There’s something you can do with that. I’m not saying one is better than the other, in terms of console versus mobile. It’s a different gaming experience. Both interest me.”
Pacey added, “Mobile is where the eyeballs are at. We have been talking about what kind of products we would make if we were able to pursue that channel,” Pacey said.
No games or information about what types of games Nuclear Division will be developing has been revealed today.
