Dr Disrespect’s new game studio, Midnight City, showed off the gameplay of their upcoming FPS title, Dedrop. The title was described by the developers as a vertical extraction shooter and is still in the early stages of development.
Those who are part of the Midnight Society Access Pass can now download a short preview of Deaddrop via the official Midnight Society website. A release date for Deadrop has yet to be set by Midnight Society, but the studio has a lot of talent behind them.
As detailed on the official Midnight Society website, names such as Darren Bacon (Halo Infinite, Halo 5, Destiny), Jim Gray (Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Star Wars 1313), Alex Fennell (Halo Infinite, The Elder Scrolls: Online), and many other veterans are leading the development of Dr Disrespect’s new game.
Dr Disrespect himself was also the community manager for Sledgehammer Games, as well as a level designer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, where he helped create various multiplayer maps for the game. Leaving Sledgehammer Games in 2015, he spoke endlessly about the lack of initiative and the overall quality of first-person shooters.
This led to the creation of Midnight Society, which Dr Disrespect co-founded in December 2021. The studio’s website states that it is a “new type of AAA game studio and online publishing model. course of creation for more than a decade”. express that Midnight Society is a “group of ambitious games industry veterans who see a future in which developers no longer create experiences in a vacuum and players share in a game’s success”.
As for what the studio is working on, Midnight Society says Deadrop will be the most community-centric online PVP multiplayer experience the world has ever seen. Deaddrop will be built from the ground up using Unreal Engine 5 and will be open to their Day Zero community and core content creators from early iterations through the Founders Access Pass.
