Former Mass Effect series director Casey Hudson announces a brand new development studio called, Humanoid Studio. Exciting times!
During his time at BioWare, Hudson worked on the Mass Effect trilogy, Star Wars: KOTOR, and Jade Empire to name but a few. Oh, and he did help develop Anthem, but the less said about that game the better.
Hudson was with BioWare during the early 2000s, before leaving in 2014 to join Microsoft Studios as a creative director. He then left Microsoft to re-join BioWare as GM and then departed the company for a second time in December 2020.
However, Hudson is back within the industry as the founder and CEO of the new Humanoid Studios and will be working on a brand-new IP.
