This strong team, and 360* experience, allowed us to ship products and grow in just 6 months. Now, this feeds into the ability to bring the next wave of phenomenal team members on board. We are very excited about new key personalities with experience from Call of Duty, Dash NEXT, and CD Projekt Red. We expect to have more big team announcements in the coming months.
