NetEase Games are generally known for their work on mobile platforms. The developer has a great track record of creating titles such as Dead by Daylight: Mobile and Knives Out. Naturally, after a good track record in mobile, NetEase also wants to dip its toes into PC gaming.
While their Montréal studio assists 24 Entertainments in Naraka Bladepoint, they have yet to make their own in-house game. It seems the company is keen on changing that.

Earlier last night, NetEase announced that they have officially hired the talent of Jonathan Morin. Joining NetEase Games Montréal as a Creative Director, Morin is best known for being the Creative Director in Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs games.
He will help the studio in creating a new IP, one of the main focuses of the company. Morin spoke a bit about him joining the studio.
“I am excited to announce my new adventure as Creative Director at NetEase Games Montreal. I am privileged to join a passionate and talented new team to create our IP,” Morin said. “This is the beginning of something special for me and I cannot wait to say more…”
The announcement of Morin joining the studio confirms the company’s interest in PC gaming. Earlier, NetEase announced its purchase of France-based Quantic Dream, who are known for Detroit: Become Human among other titles. NetEase also announced the founder of RGG Studios of SEGA, Toshihiro Nagoshi, joining the company this year and forming his studio called Nagoshi Studios.
With so many great talents and studios under its belt, the company is certainly one to keep an eye on.
