    Hiroyuki Kobayashi, producer of Resident Evil 4, has assembled a team at NetEase and is working on a new IP

    New news has surfaced about Hiroyuki Kobayashi, the former Capcom producer in charge of Resident Evil and Dragon’s Dogma, who is now leading a new team at NetEase and working on new intellectual property.

    Last August, we already learned that Kobayashi left Capcom and joined NetEase, but now the first official details about his new profession have appeared. The former producer of Resident Evil and Dragon’s Dogma is indeed leading a new studio called GPTRACK50, which is based in Japan and is exploring new “entertainment concepts” that can appeal to a global audience.

    The studio is expanding but already contains several experiential elements across fields ranging from video games to film and television to highlight the eclectic vision behind this new team’s creation. The main idea is to create “original IP that can impress the whole world.”

    “The studio is committed to creating original gaming content and expanding the spectrum from games to movies and entertainment series,” reads the description compiled by NetEase. The GPTRACK50 is a subsidiary of a Chinese company, meaning it is fully controlled by an in-house team but with considerable creative freedom.

    The new studio has not yet announced any games, but we expect announcements to come in the near future. In the meantime, we continue to record intense expansion activity from NetEase, which acquired Quantic Dream a few months ago in addition to a new studio from series creator Yakuza.
