Former Machine Games Devs Establish New Studio Bad Yolk

A brand new studio, by the name of Bad Yolk, has been created by former members of Machine Games — the developer that has worked on the Wolfenstein series since 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order. Founded by developers Michael Paixao and Joel Jonsson, Bad Yolk currently comprises a core team of ten senior members whose portfolio includes experience working on such titles like Eve Online, Gears of War and The Division.

“We felt it was time to branch out on our own to create a new kind of studio,” Paixao explains. “Obviously high quality video games should be fun to play, but we also believe that they should be fun to make and that creativity thrives best in a healthy and balanced work environment, which is a central pillar of our corporate message and structure.” Bad Yolk state that they are already underway with their first, as yet unspecified, new project.
