NetEase Games Announces Worlds Untold Studio

A new fully remote game studio based in Vancouver, Canada, NetEase Games has announced the creation of Worlds Untold.

This studio is led by Mac Walters, who has more than two decades of experience in games and writing. He previously worked on the Mass Effect series, most recently serving as project director on Mass Effect Legendary Edition.

Worlds Untold is setting out to create interactive narratives that “blur the line between games and film in order to create a sense of immersion and engagement with their worlds and characters unlike any other.”

Mac Walters, CEO, Worlds Untold said the following:

“We’re creating incredible and meaningful stories that we believe are best told and experienced through play. We are starting by crafting worlds that we all dream of discovering and then will put the player in the leading role of the most unforgettable adventures. The team at NetEase Games shares our vision and passion to utilize leading edge technology to create the best possible new games. Their teams’ support and creative freedom affords us the opportunity to deliver on that vision.”Mac Walters

Simon Zhu, president of global investments and partnerships at NetEase Games, added:

“NetEase Games believes in empowering creators to think outside the box and to help execute their vision as seamlessly as possible. Worlds Untold is building a team of highly experienced individuals to develop new worlds and action adventure games for all and we are excited to see what Mac and the team produce.”Simon Zhu

Casey Scheld has more than 15 years of experience in the gaming industry as a community manager, social media director, event specialist, and (of course) gaming editor. He has previously worked with gaming start-ups like Raptr, publishers like Konami, and roller derby girls at PAX West (check out Jam City Rollergirls)! Gamers Heroes is a passion project for him, giving him a chance to tap into the underground side of gaming. He is all too eager to give these lesser-known heroes of the indie space the attention they so rightly deserve, seeking out the next gem and sharing it with the world. Previously making appearances at events like CES, GDC, and (the late) E3, he is all too happy to seek out the next big thing.
