Boyes said in an exclusive interview with GamesBeat that he enjoyed his job building communities and development partners at Sony. But he’ll get back to game development by joining Chicago-based Iron Galaxy.
“I had a yearning to create things,” he said. “Making games has always been a passion of mine. Looking at the huge experience that Iron Galaxy has, I thought about how I [could] take my experience and amplify that.”
Iron Galaxy is known for developing games for other publishers. It has worked on titles such as Killer Instinct for Xbox One and Windows, as well as Destiny for the PlayStation 3 and BioShock Infinite. It has also published its own games such as Videoball, Capsule Force, and Divekick.
Does Boyes now work for Xbox? No. Boyes is the CEO of Iron Galaxy which is independent but just so happens to work on the Xbox exclusive Killer Instinct.
