Former Cryptic Employees Are Working on Alien Shooter

In 2016 a trio of Cryptic employees decided to leave the Neverwinter studio and try their luck with a project of themselves. They founded a new company called Cold Iron Studios. So far, other than that they plan to work on “AAA action titles”, we didn’t really know what the folks were up to. That changed last week with FoxNext Games, the interactive division of Fox, acquiring the studio. Cold Iron Studio will now work on a PC and console shooter based on the Alien franchise.

While this is not directly Neverwinter news, it’s good to see some former folks landing a big gig with their new venture. And if you guys are into shooters, this might be worth checking out whenever there’s something to check out.
