Splitgate devs want to be “the next Riot Games”

Splitgate devs want to be “the next Riot Games”

Splitgate: Arena Warfare has been around for a while, but its launch this year has seen the arena shooter – usually described as Halo meets Portal – skyrocket in popularity. Now developer 1047 Games is looking to build the Splitgate studio into “the next Riot Games” and fill the void between Quake and Fortnite.

After a modestly popular start for the initial Splitgate earlier this year, word spread around and the game quickly rose in popularity – breaking multiple Steam records in the process and forcing 1047 Games to greatly increase Splitgate’s server capacity.

Speaking with TechCrunch, 1047’s co-founder and CEO Ian Proulx attributes this success to Splitgate innovating in a genre – arena shooter – that hasn’t seen many significant releases in recent years, while making it more accessible too. “People grew up playing these games, and the reason [the market] is dead is not because they stopped loving them,” Proulx says. “Quake Arena is great, but it’s extremely difficult. No 12-year-old Fortnite kid is gonna play it. We really do fill this void.”
