Street announced the news on LinkedIn today (April 6), with the developer explaining that he has moved back to Texas after 15 years in California.
“These past few years made me think a lot about my future and what I want to accomplish,” wrote Street. “They’ve made me think of the kinds of games I wanted to make as the defining milestones of my career: I want to make games I am truly passionate about and that players will love. They’ve also made me think of the effectiveness of remote work and how it can help me stay closer to my family.”
“That is why I’m excited to announce that I am starting my own remote studio,” the developer continued. “Our goal is to move fast and go big. Fortunately, I have found a great strategic partner aligned with this vision, and we are moving forward!”

Street added that he is not ready to share the studio’s name or details of its debut game, but teased that it will “be an MMO or something very MMO-like”.
The studio is currently at a recruitment stage, but Street has shared that it will “share what we’re working on early and often”.
Last month, Street announced his departure from Riot Games, where he served as producer for the studio’s upcoming massively multiplayer online (MMO) game set in the League Of Legends universe.
At the time, Riot Games co-founder Marc Merrill said the MMO remains in “early development” and still has a “very long road” ahead of its launch.
In other gaming news, Bungie has acknowledged that it “missed the mark” with parts of Destiny 2‘s latest expansion.
