Two of the co-founders of Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar Games have decided to form their own game company. 4mm Games will develop and publish "a diverse portfolio of entertainment properties that join together video game consoles, personal computers, mobile phones and the Internet."
Rockstar's former VP of Product Development Jamie King and former Chief Technology Officer Gary Foreman will serve as President and Chief Technology Officer, respectively, of the new company. Nicholas Perrett, former General Manager of Image Metrics (a face animation studio), will be CEO and Paul Coyne, a former VP for NBC and Senior VP for Warner Music Group, will be Executive Vice President.
“I was hugely honored to be approached by talent of Jamie and Gary’s caliber to co-found 4mm Games,” said Perrett. “It is an utterly unprecedented time in the history of video games, as the web and new business models disrupt the existing value chain. We are excited to create a new type of business to deliver groundbreaking content with global appeal to a consumer who lives online.”
4mm promises to make more announcements, perhaps related to their upcoming products, in the next few weeks. They've got a website up at 4mmgames.com.
