Dr. Disrespect Launches “AAA Games Studio” With Call of Duty and Halo Veterans
Guy Beahm, the mustached streamer better known as Dr Disrespect, has teamed up with former Call of Duty creative strategist Robert Bowling and Halo 5 multiplayer designer Quinn Delhoyo to launch a new game studio called Midnight Society. , aiming to create “the best, most community-driven online PVP multiplayer experience the world has never seen.”
Things seem to be pretty early in the process, and they haven’t released any details on what the studio is working on. But as you would expect from a project led by Dr Disrespect, there’s a lot of hyperbole on tap: Midnight Society is “a team of AAA veteran killers who live, breathe and sleep in the realm of PVP multiplayer “is” turning the tide “in the gaming industry with a” new kind of game studio and publishing model in the works for over a decade “.

By filtering out the breathlessness, Midnight Society will rely heavily on Early Access, with a particular focus on high-profile influencers: the studio’s announcement says one of its priorities is “to include communities and influencers much earlier in the development process ”than usual. And while Beahm’s involvement may seem like the developmental version of stunt games, remember that before he rose to fame as the Roaring Mustache, he was a community manager and designer at Sledgehammer Games, with credits. on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Advanced Warfare.
“As a longtime gamer, streamer and former game developer, I have often dreamed of creating great titles that entire communities can support from day one,” Beahm said. “My vision is to create games that challenge the single posting model and to reward all the fans and influencers who make them successful.”
For now, the studio is mostly focused on hiring: the careers page lists vacancies for a community manager, designers, engineers, artists, and more, all of whom can work remotely, which is why is good. And he’s definitely aiming high. Midnight Society describes itself as an “AAA games studio” and most job postings require at least five years of experience developing big budget games.
