Wildlife Studios has cemented its third exclusive game development partnership in the industry. Top game creator Jonathan Durr will be leading the new independent studio in Los Angeles, California.

“Wildlife has offered an unprecedented opportunity with the system they have created,” said Jonathan Durr. “Foxbear Games will initially focus on bringing different audiences to the RPG genre while building a truly immersive experience that players will love to play every day for years to come. We are excited to partner with Wildlife and eager to work alongside their team to bring our ideas to life”.
“With Jonathan Durr, we’re adding someone who has mastered the understanding of deep RPG systems to our creative network”, said Victor Lazarte, CEO of Wildlife Studios. “With Durr’s expertise and long history of success with the RPG genre, paired with Wildlife’s infrastructure, we are confident that Foxbear Games will deliver an amazing new mobile experience to gamers around the world.”
