Alan McDermott, Nigel Kershaw, and Stuart Trevor of Evolution Studios, the developer of the well-received MotorStorm series and the more tumultuous Driveclub, have formed Wushu Studios. Wushu Studios, based in Liverpool, was originally founded in August of a year ago and since September, have already begun prototyping the studio's debut game. Aiming to move away from AAA title development, he team instead wants to offer titles with interesting mechanics, unique concepts and refreshing gameplay.

Based in Liverpool, UK, the newly founded Wushu Studios has announced that it's working on a sci-fi game utilising Unreal Engine 4. The company is now beavering away on its first effort, a science fiction-flavored game that is looking to take an "unexpected turn" on the genre.

McDermott used to be the Audio Director at Evolution Studios, where he worked on games like Driveclub and MotorStorm for eleven years.

"Our core team at Wushu have worked together closely on numerous projects over the years so there was no downtime in figuring out how to work together", said McDermott.

Minnesota Vikings Fans Go Berserk as Team Pulls Off Incredible Playoff Victory
A first-ever Super Bowl championship for the Vikings franchise, and a first-ever Super Bowl by a team in their home stadium. Some have dubbed the play " The Minneapolis Miracle ". "Neither one of them has played much football, " Theismann said .

We firmly believed in the idea that our initial concepts needed to be gamepad experiences as quickly as possible, so we turned to Unreal Engine for its fantastic rapid prototyping capabilities.

Nigel Kershaw has almost thirty years of experience in the industry, culminating at Evolution Studios where Evolution he was Game Director on MotorStorm: Pacific Rift.

And if you're not normally someone who keeps up with known industry names, you might still recognize their Head of Marketing and PR, known best as shinobi602 on Twitter and also one of the movers and shakers of the biggest gaming discussion forum out there, Resetera. With work only beginning on the mystery game in September previous year, it may be some time before we hear more; as we get more information, though, we'll be sure to pass it along.

We don't know whether this will be a multi-platform title or a console exclusive game.
