Wet is a post-production workshop developed by Peter Jackson, located in Wellington, New Zealand. The firm is separated right into 2 areas: Wet Workshop and also Wet Digital. The name of the studio comes from the Wet, a pest from Oceania and also for which Peter Jackson feels some anxiety. The actual name of the firm is in fact a phrase for Wingnut Amusement Technical Allusions referring to the Wingnut company. This is among one of the most prominent special impacts studios in the film market.
The study behind the visual effects and the utility that are seen in the cinematographic franchise The Lord of the Rings has said that he is working on a new video game. At this time, the identity of said video game is not currently known, but the study has mocked that the IP is close and dear by the company. Unfortunately, no more details have been given about when this project could be presented formally.
Seen through the official work page of Wet Workshop, a new role for a producer in the study provided some of the first bits of information related to this game. We are currently looking for an exceptionally talented game producer to join our team in the beautiful Wellington. The position will help us to deliver our next game project for PC and consoles with an important global intellectual property that is very close to our hearts, says the publication of work.. Apart from this broad description, it was also said that this role will be in the field of this next exciting phase here in the interactive team in Wet Workshop.
Since the description of the work says that this IP is close to Wet, it is logical to think that the game could be associated with the Lord of the Rings. That said, although LOTR is probably the most notable franchise in which the company has worked, many other properties of large games have also been involved with the study over the years. Some of these include King Kong, Mad Max, Avatar, Planet of the Apes and Blade Runner, among many others.
It is worth noting that this new game announcement occurs only a few weeks after Unity, which is the company responsible for the game engine of the same name, bought Wet Digital for a sum of more than $1.5 billion. As such, it is logical to think that Unity may be looking for Wet now play a more important role in the game development space than in the past.
What do you think that Wet Workshop seeks to develop a new video game? And what do you think it could be this great global intellectual property in which the study is working? Give me your best assumption, either in the comments or contact me on Twitter in @ mooreman12.
