NetEase Games has announced the establishment of a new studio, Worlds Untold, to develop AAA titles.
This new game studio is headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, and employs a fully remote work system. At the helm is Mac Walters, who has been involved in games and writing for over 20 years. He has previously served as project manager and lead writer for the Mass Effect series.
The new studio “Worlds Untold” aims to “produce IP with deep content and possibilities that go beyond just one game or medium.” We are currently developing an action-adventure game set in the near future.
“Worlds Untold” brings together some of the most famous developers.
Audio Director: Mr. Sotaro Tojima

The team at NetEase Games shares the same vision and passion as us, creating the best new games using the latest technology. With their support and creative freedom, we can make this vision a reality.”
