Arkane Studios: The Story So Far
The evolution of the modern immersive sim studio.
Arkane Studios is developing two of the most fascinating upcoming video games: the time-looping assassin sim, Deathloop, and the co-op vampire slaying adventure, Redfall. Though each has the potential to be a unique experience, they both fit comfortably in the 20-year history of development studio Arkane, which has evolved and refined a deep, multi-layered approach to game design throughout its history.
The studio is best known for creating “immersive sims,” a genre characterised by its combination of RPG elements, first-person action, and interlocking gameplay systems. But Arkane takes that one step further, crafting intricate, freeform levels that offer thrilling and impactful choices at every turn. Each successive Arkane game introduces new ideas while reinforcing and refining the studio’s established formula, which has resulted in a library of memorable genre hybrids. And with Deathloop and Redfall signalling the company’s next evolutionary change, it’s the perfect time to reflect on two decades of creation.
This is the story of Arkane Studios, so far.
