Having left Epic for Irrational Games in August 2012, before subsequently departing Irrational in April this year after helping the studio wrap up development on BioShock Infinite, Rod Fergusson is now opening a new 2K studio.

"It’s official: I’m launching a new studio for 2K in the Bay Area with an exciting new project! Details soon!" Fergusson announced on Twitter.

No further details have been revealed on what the exciting new project is exactly, but we love things that are both exciting and new, so colour us intrigued. Watch this space.

He's not exactly going to say we have an old boring project in the works.

@#2 I don't get why so many people were upset by all that. Of course achievements are put in dlc to sell it, I would have assumed that would have been common sense to know stuff like that. He's just being honest and saying it aloud. EPIC aren't the only ones that have achievements in dlc yano.

@5 Well, to that extent, you have two kinds of honest people. You have, on one side, say, Notch. On the other side, for example, you've got this guy, and Phil Fish.

@7, There's that "we used achievements to sell DLC" article, then there's the second one about "hackers and modders being really fucking lazy"

If you recall the socialite achievement and its requirements from Gears 3, read the article, then read the first comment.

So yeah, while he is honest, he can be ignorant. Either way, I'm not a fan.

@ Lemons - dude I hear you but yah, agree with Webb. I actually respected IrrationalViking more (and CliffyB a lot less) after that.

A lot of folks wouldn't have had the yarbles to speak the truth like that. Then he jumps in and actually pushes back a massive anticipation release like Bioshock Infinite for finishing time. That takes some yarbles too when the whole world has been waiting years for it already. And that was a good move.

I am honestly interested in anything his team pulls off in the future.

#9 I don't like you, I've read your comments in here and I've decided to go out of my way to attack you based on a few sentences you wrote. I might attack you as soon as I see anything you write on the internet also just cause I have nothing better to do.

(for anyone who is stupid, google the word irony)

I'm pretty sure hate monging toward Roddy boy is completely justified.

His little tirade about modders and hackers really got my blood boiling over how fucking ignorant he is.

And I might add, I have been reset 3 times on Gears 3, and from a 100 on Gears 2 due to their EPIC programming, so to hear him talk shit about people who got Socialite due to a glitch in his own game really puts his bullshit into perspective.

#14 so it has nothing to do with that then, must have been Rod Fergusson who reset you personally.

@15, what has nothing to do with what? Socialite has nothing to do with resets? It's not anyone in particular who gets reset, it's due to the games code screwing you over at random times. Epic don't give a shit if you boost their game, they stopped giving a shit about two months after Gears 3 was released.

He might just be the man to come up with new ways of how to rape cheevo whores of more of their money. Odds are it's next gen project with new achievement rules and he will use that to cash in for sure=) For me it don't matter really if it's solid game, I will pick it up eventually=)

Considering how much I've enjoyed from 2K in the past eight months, I'll be more than willing to give whatever it is a shot.
Definitely need some more options when it comes time to building my Xbox One library (or 360, as I'll just be keeping that in a futile attempt to work on my backlog).
