Former members of Avalanche Studios, the developer behind the Disney Infinity series, are part of a new Salt Lake City based studio.
The studio, castAR Salt Lake City, is the newest from “mixed-reality entertainment” castAR. President and chief operating officer Steve Parkis has “responsibility for the team” in Salt Lake.
Currently the Palo Alto, CA based castAR is “developing a mixed reality entertainment platform” using a mix of both hardware and software to “create playful, social and approachable experiences.”
The addition of the former Avalanche Studios team members and the opening of castAR Salt Lake City doubles the size of the development team, something Parkis calls a “bold step” in launching its mixed-reality platform.
