Lars Gustavsson, a former key player in the Battlefield franchise, has announced the formation of a new development studio known as Time To Kill Games (TTK Games).
TTK Games was co-founded by a number of former EA DICE developers and is based in Stockholm, Sweden, with the studio confirming it has secured “significant” funding to work on a “new, next-generation online shooter.”
Gustavsson will serve as creative director and CEO of TTK Games, following a 20-year stint at EA Dice, where he worked on the likes of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Battlefield 5, and Battlefield 1. He announced his departure from the studio last September.
Meanwhile, TTK Games is also comprised of Daniel Berlin (Senior Designer Director), Vidar Nygren (Chief Technical Officer and Technical Director), and Peter Hoyles (Art Director).
