New World Interactive was founded in 2010 with a vision to create hardcore, immersive, close-quarters-combat FPS games. Our founder, and the small team that joined him, were a group of prior modders, many of whom worked on the mod, Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat, which was the predecessor to our breakout game, Insurgency.
In the first year after launch (2014) of Insurgency, the game achieved 2nd most purchased game on Steam for all non free-to-play, premium games. Since that time Insurgency has been played by over 8 million gamers all over the world and we’ve earned the #1 selling spot on Steam multiple times. In 2017 we launched Day of Infamy, a World War II themed FPS and then Insurgency: Sandstorm was launched in 2018. To date we’ve had nearly 11 million gamers play our games and this is just on PC! With the move to console both for Insurgency:Sandstorm and future titles, we anticipate a tremendous surge in player count and greater awareness about New World Interactive and our ground-breaking FPS titles.
As a company we are committed to an extraordinary culture and work environment that is best-in-class. We are pioneers in the new age of game development, committed to constantly improving ourselves and exceeding the expectations of our community, emphasizing a Player First mindset in everything we do. We’ve got two active projects in development (hint: both FPS games!) and we’re seeking to add more passionate, highly skilled individuals looking to join the industry's next AAA studio. Come join the New World and discover a completely different approach to game development where you have impact and voice, and where your success is unlimited!
New World Interactive was originally founded in 2010, with humble beginnings as a small ambitious team. Its core members were heavily involved in a series of successful total conversion mods, including Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat and Red Orchestra. The team was inexperienced with developing commercial games, but found themselves greatly inspired and motivated by the successes of other mod-turned-games of the time.
The launch of Insurgency in January of 2014 was the culmination of these efforts. The game, true to its name, defied what many people considered to be standard for first-person shooter games. The interface did away with on-screen crosshairs and other less-than-critical elements in favor of immersion, and the experience revolved around objectives which required coordination between players. Insurgency was one of the top selling and most highly played games on Steam in 2014. Today, Insurgency has sold over 5 million units and has a 90% rating on Steam, and you can also find thousands of people playing at any given moment.
With Insurgency’s success, the young company was propelled into a period of growth. Between 2014 and 2017 the team grew from 18 developers located all around the world into a team double the size with a studio where the core team worked. During this period NWI developed free content for the Insurgency community while also experimenting with new projects. Day of Infamy was one of the projects that emerged during this time, taking Insurgency’s gameplay and bringing it to World War II. The other project would eventually become what is now Insurgency: Sandstorm, the Unreal Engine 4 based sequel.
Insurgency: Sandstorm is the sequel to the indie breakout FPS Insurgency, reborn for PC and for the first time on consoles – improved, expanded, and bigger in every way.
New World Interactive, the award-winning developer of the multi-million selling Insurgency video game franchise, today announced it will open another development studio ‘New World North’ in Calgary, Canada. The move comes in anticipation of sustained company growth after the highly successful PC launch of Insurgency: Sandstorm and upcoming console version slated for 2019.
This partnership will enable New World to leverage a vast amount of publishing, marketing, and development resources as part of the wider Embracer Group and Saber Interactive ecosystem.
