Broken Roads Adds More Top Aussie Talent
Broken Roads just keeps looking and sounding better and better. Following the hiring of RPG master Colin McComb as Creative Lead last year, Drop Bear Bytes has expanded their leadership team with Leanne Taylor-Giles joining the team as the new Narrative Lead for the upcoming Australian set post-apocalyptic RPG.
Taylor-Giles finds herself heading back home to Aus after almost six years working at Ubisoft Montreal, where she worked as a scriptwriter on Rainbow Six Siege and Watch Dogs 2.
“We needed an Australian narrative lead,” says McComb. “It turns out I’d worked with a tremendously talented Australian before, and in an even happier coincidence, it turns out she was looking for a new opportunity. I’m absolutely delighted to get a chance to work with her again.”
Scheduled for release towards the end of the year, Broken Roads is a game that I for one am really looking forward to. While I only saw a very early build at PAX in 2019, I loved what I saw and was looking forward to getting to really explore the combat side at PAX last year before Covid-19 put the kibosh on those plans.
“I was delighted to hear that a branching CRPG with deep moral conflicts was being made in Australia,” says Taylor-Giles, “and even happier about it once I’d had a few meetings with the team. I’m overjoyed to have the chance to work with Colin again, and I can’t wait to get stuck into the world of Broken Roads to see where its interweaving storylines take us!”
Broken Roads is currently in development for consoles and PC. Keep your eyes on Player2 for all you need to know about Broken Roads.
