NetEase Games Introduces AAA Global Game Studio BulletFarm

A new remote-first AAA game studio headquartered in Los Angeles, California, NetEase Games has announced the establishment of BulletFarm.

The latest addition to NetEase Games’ portfolio, this studio is led by David Vonderhaar. His resume includes leadership on the Call of Duty: Black Ops series.

David Vonderhaar, Studio Head at BulletFarm, said the following:

“Starting this new studio has given me a chance to step out of my comfort zone and try my hand at making something entirely new and different. This is a departure from the games I’ve worked on, but one that showcases my passion for rich characters, precise mechanics, more intimate storytelling, and plenty of action. NetEase has provided us an incredible support structure to explore these new avenues and allow true freedom to begin building the concept and ideas for our game.”David Vonderhaar

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

“NetEase Games is fully dedicated to giving BulletFarm the resources and support required to build this new first person experience. David’s leadership and the early collection of game development talent assembled at the studio is set to offer something truly unique for his existing fans along with a new audience.”Simon Zhu

BulletFarm is currently working on a new and ambitious AAA game, built in Unreal Engine 5, set in an original universe, and featuring an emphasis on co-op gameplay.
