Robert Bowling, the former IW Creative Strategist (who left Infinity Ward in March of 2012), has just announced a new iOS/Android game he’s been working on.
The game is called “Breach and Clear” and it’s coming in Spring 2013 to iOS and Android devices. The game’s main developer is “Gun Media”, Bowling will be the executive producer on Breach & Clear – ” [a] hybrid tactical strategy game that puts you in control of Special Operations Forces during the planning and execution stages of high-risk, close-quarters missions and beyond.”
“We’re hoping to change the conversation about what denotes a mobile game,” said Bowling. “With Breach & Clear, we’ve taken the design principles of creating a major console release and transferred that to a title that just so happens to be launching on mobile devices. Our focus is to take a gameplay experience and mechanic that is built from the ground up for mobile or touch control and enhance it with the depth and progression you’d expect from a AAA console release.”
Robert Bowling is also the President of Robotoki Studio, which he created in April of 2012. Robotoki announced their first IP game in E3 2012, which is called Human Element, a zombie type game that is coming in 2015. According to Bowling, they will be announcing another game on March 4th.
Robert Bowling issued a statement to Games Industry:
The development and launch of Breach & Clear will have no impact on the production cycle of any projects at Robotoki. In fact, in March, Robotoki will be doing a large expansion and hiring spree to ramp up on production of Human Element as well as a new title which will be unveiled on March 4th.
