Digital collectibles platform and NFT marketplace, Terra Virtua, has announced that it’s starting its own dedicated studio. Named Terra Virtua Studios, its focus will be on creating its own games that include its iconic NFT characters – ‘Vflects’.
Along with creating new titles, the studio will also be building on existing collaborations, while partnering with AAA studios like Stainless Games – the team behind Magic: The Gathering, and Carmageddon.
Stainless Games, Game Director & Co-Founder, Neil Barnden, commented, “We’re excited to be working with Terra Virtua on a fun integration of its highly successful, growing collection of virtual characters, in an original and innovative game. We see the Stainless Games and Terra Virtua partnership as the ideal combination of ambition, talent and vision.”
Along with Stainless, Terra Virtua Studios will also be expanding its current working partnerships to include Nitro League and the developer – Big Immersive, to create further partnerships with third-party devs – offering them the means to create an intuitive platform, marketplace, and place within the metaverse.
The Terra Virtua team has a legacy in games, including Chairman Gary Bracey, CEO Jawad Ashraf, and COO Doug Dyer, who will oversee studio production. With over 50 years of experience between them, they know what makes a great game.
Some of the first games from the studio are expected to release by late summer 2022, with Stainless Games’ title landing later on in the year.
Terra Virtua CEO Jawad Ashraf said in a statement, “Terra Virtua has been part of the web 3.0 revolution since the very beginning. We have always had gaming in our DNA and Terra Virtua Studios is a big part of our wider expansion into the metaverse.”
