What an announcement! The 100 Thieves esports organization has been around since 2017 and has since had a string of major successes in several extremely relevant esports titles. Additionally, the organization of well-known founder and former professional Call of Duty player Matthew Haag, better known as Nadeshot, has become particularly well-known for the strong content creators who work for the 100 Thieves brand. They are also already involved in the areas of lifestyle and clothing.
Now they want to go one step further and share with the public the biggest announcement since the company was founded, explains Nadeshot through a Twitter post. There he says that now you are concentrating on developing your own video game. The game, which has the working title “Project XIt’s supposed to be the next big challenge for Nadeshot and the 100 Thieves and will most likely be based on old multiplayer hits. Project X is developed together with its own creators, its own professionals, and its own community.
That’s behind Project X
According to the announcement, the basic idea refers to the nostalgic memories of the times when you would come home and then jump as fast as possible to the current game of your choice and have fun with your friends for hours. Whether it’s Halo 2, a racing game, Call of Duty, Pokémon, or StarCraft, all of these titles exude a certain energy and bring back positive memories.
The 100 Thieves want to take advantage of these times so they can laugh with friends again and search for trophies that only a few players have. Nadeshot has been thinking about that time in his past a lot lately, and looking back, it was those games that made him make video games his career.
According to Nadeshot, the 100 Thieves video game is the biggest announcement since 100 Thieves was founded in 2017. Since then, the company has celebrated numerous successes in esports and created great content for the community. Every few years he has taken a huge step in his career, from competitive gamer to content creator, finally to entrepreneur.
We still don’t know any more details about the game that Nadeshot and the 100 Thieves will create. As already mentioned, it seems extremely likely that there will be an extensive multiplayer part. But the associated gender could be many things. The organization employs esports teams in various games such as Apex Legends, Call of Duty, Fortnite, League of Legends, and Valorant.
Many of these games are shooters, but other genres also seem conceivable at the moment. More recently, though, Nadeshot fell deeply in love with Riot Games’ hero shooter Valorant, which could well be a sign that the game 100 Thieves could be in the first-person shooter genre as well.
Great project, little concrete
In a nearly nine-minute video, founder and CEO Nadeshot speaks with John Robinson, Thieves’ president and COO. In it, the two explain that they have been philosophizing about exactly this idea for about two years and are already working on it in part. However, for a long time no one would have believed that the project would actually be feasible. However, the plan became more and more concrete, until finally the decision was made to develop a completely own game for the next few years.
By involving creators, professionals, and the community, they want to create a uniqueness that has never existed before in game development. In this way, the chances of success of the project would be maximized, Robinson emphasizes in an interview, which he can see and hear in full below.
Haag and Robinson discussed a lot among themselves what factors are crucial for good games. The focus is often on maps and matchmaking, but also on network code and other factors. But beyond the CEO and COO, there are many creative people in our own ranks who bring interesting ideas to the field of game design. Now we want to make use of this requirement.
The 100 Thieves team is now joined by new Chief Product Officer Pete Hawley, whom Robinson has known for many years, more specifically since the two worked together at EA. For example, Hawley was noted for his work as executive producer on Burnout Paradise. He also worked on other well-known projects like Fable, Killzone or Little Big Planet.
As already mentioned, there is still little concrete to report on the game. You are at the beginning of a long journey that you want to take to the community with you.
