Online games studio created by industry veterans

A new studio dedicated to the production of online games and boasting an impressive senior executive team is now operating out of Los Angeles. Globex Studios LA is currently working on MMORPGs for the Chinese market and undisclosed online titles intended for global appeal.

Chairman and CEO Dr Benjamin Chow stated: “By putting together this highly creative international team, we are bringing together the sophisticated gameplay of a western game with the unique social gameplay of a Chinese MMO. We are excited to be meeting these challenges and experiencing the growth opportunities of the evolving worldwide industry."

The studio boasts prior work on over 100 games, including Pandemic Studios titles Star Wars Battlefront and the original Mercenaries. 

Key members of the L.A. team include former Executive Art Director of Pandemic Studios Carey Chico, now President and Chief Creative Officer; video game designer, director and producer Troy Dunniway as Vice President of Game Development, and game product development and publishing veteran Jesse Taylor as Chief Technology Officer/Chief Operating Officer.

CCO Carey Chico said: “In addition to exploring new paradigms for development, Globex Studios is also well positioned for the transition happening in today's industry from a 'game as product' to a 'game as service' market, with online games as a major focus."
