Casey Hudson is back in the games industry.

Casey Hudson, BioWare’s most recognisable face, and longtime studio GM, left the studio in December last year to try something different. The veteran developer luckily won’t be be leaving games behind, however.

Hudson announced his return to the world of game development under a new banner: Humanoid Studios, his new venture, which is going to be working on a new IP. Humanoid is based in Canada, with offices in British Columbia, and Alberta.

The team already has a few members, and it’s hiring for a number of positions. Humanoid has a flexible work environment that combines standard in-office with home-based and even remote work.

“We believe in the power of small, agile teams, and a flat organizational structure, where everyone is empowered to make decisions and help drive the project vision,” the studio said.

For his part, Hudson said the studio is “built to unleash the creative freedom of developers.”

Interestingly, Dragon Age executive producer Mark Darrah, who left BioWare with Hudson, is not part of today’s announcement. Darrah has, however, been sharing game development advice from his new YouTube channel, and so far does not appear to be involved in any projects.
