Look North World was founded by Alex Seropian, Jay Pecho, Patrick Moran, Kyle Marks, Aaron Marroquin, and Prashant Patil. Alex Seropian is best known as a founder of Bungie, the studio behind the Halo and Destiny franchises.
Jay Pecho will serve as CTO, Aaron Marroquin as principal artist, Prashant Patil as art director, and Kyle Marks as creative director.
The first game from the studio is Outlaw Corral, which is being developed in Unreal Engine for Fortnite.
The game is described as “a wild west island featuring skill-based shootouts”. Fortnite “islands” developed using Unreal Engine for Fortnite allow developers to make money based on the number of players who play on that island.
“Developing in UEFN opens a whole new world of opportunities, and we are in uncharted territory. Through experimentation, we will see what the players like and involve them in decisions,” said Seropian.
“We are jumping into it with a ‘the virtual sky is the limit’ mentality. As we develop creative ideas, we will learn how these platforms engage, entertain and boost social interactions in order to iterate accordingly.”
Players are able to have an active role in providing input to future Look North World games by joining the company’s Discord.
The first 1,000 Discord members will be automatically added to the company’s Beta Test channel to help test new games before release.
