Cory Davis, director of Spec Ops: The Line, and Robin Finck, Nine Inch Nails guitarist, have announced that they have opened a new video game development studio called EYES OUT. The studio will operate out of Los Angeles and are working on a “cosmic horror game with strong environmental storytelling elements”. The studio are currently hiring but the existing staff includes members that worked on Apex Legends, Gears of War, Here They Lie, The Evil Within and more.

Here’s what Cory Davis had to say:

When I was finishing up work on Here They Lie, Robin wandered into our studio and I felt a very strong connection to his open, creative view of existence, and the power of music. We instantly started working on some prototypes I had in development at the time and together we launched straight toward something unexpected. Robin’s vibrant and boundless approach to the creative process drives our work far beyond my previous experience. It’s such an exhilarating trip to venture into the darkness together.

Here’s what Robin Finck had to say:

Cory is a true and impassioned artist. He’s a visionary leader who draws the highest and best from each person on the team, no matter their position. He’s capable and dedicated and he’s open to forces unspeakable. He’s rare. Weird, even. We connected about films and games and music and all the minutia and it was a really positive charge colliding with him. We have a simpatico work ethic and drive, and we see each other soul to soul. Our play together is inspired.
