Shadowbane: FiringSquad Interviews Sean Dahlberg
Wolfpack Studios Closes, Stray Bullet Studios Is Born
Recently Shadowbane's developer, Wolfpack Studios, was closed down. This spawned Stray Bullet Studios, a company made up of many of the team from Wolfpack. Not only did they form this company to help keep Shadowbane going, but to keep a successful team moving forward on many other projects. Read on to learn more...
FiringSquad: How did the decision come about to form a new studio to continue supporting Shadowbane?
Sean Dahlberg: We have a great team here; weve got solid experience developing and supporting MMOs, weve got multiple shipped products, and weve been working together for years. From the moment we heard the news, we started talking about possible ways to keep the team together.
Initially, Shadowbane was not a part of that equation. While we wanted to keep the game alive, we wanted to preserve the studio and its pool of talent and experience more than anything else. It is very rare to find such a team that meshes so well together and has the drive, experience, and personality as Stray Bullet Games now has. We had a few loses but the majority of developers from Wolfpack Studios made the transition to the new company.
