Certain Affinity has been working closely with Archetype Entertainment since 2022, partnering with Archetype Entertainment’s executive creative director and co-founder James Ohlen (formerly lead designer of Baldur’s Gate I and II, as well as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic), and alongside the studio’s vice president, executive producer, and co-founder Chad Robertson (formerly the studio director for EA BioWare).
“This game is introducing an extremely innovative and expansive world,” said Ohlen in a press release. “We are creating a new universe that we hope will be the beginning of a decades-long narrative-driven adventure for gamers. I’ve known Max for a long time and was thrilled to partner with Certain Affinity on a project. With his support and the addition of his outstanding team we’re excited to bring this new AAA Sci-fi universe to life.”
Robertson added, “The value of our experienced teams joining forces adds a clear benefit to the project and ensures that in today’s competitive video game marketplace, EXODUS will be an [intellectual property] that stands apart in terms of quality, deep engagement, and value for gamers. We have enjoyed working with Certain Affinity and look forward to the unique opportunities that come from a deep partnership like this with such a veteran team.”
