NetEase Games announced they’ve rebranded their new subsidiary studio Jackalope Games to Jackalyptic Games
The newer studio is also in the early stages on a new Warhammer game in a tight partnership with IP holder Games Workshop. The rebranding will not affect staffing and they’ll retain their current team.
“As someone who has molded my career developing expansive MMO stories, I’m proud to unveil that our first game in development at Jackalyptic Games will focus on the rich universes of Warhammer,” CEO Jack Emmert said. “Bringing the deep lore of this IP to our game is a massive undertaking, and we are thrilled to work alongside Games Workshop to bring this vision to life.”
While development on the game continues, Jackalyptic Games will work with Games Workshop to engage their respective communities to gain insights and feedback on the game.
