The former developers of Ubisoft Dean Evans and Gabriela Salvatore have officially formed a new development studio known simply under the name of Beans. The developers recently joined Devolver Direct de Devolver Digital to announce that Beans have been trained and they are looking for about seven other developers to join the studio to start working on new independent games. Between the two, the developers have 16 years of experience on Ubisoft titles, mainly focusing on the Far Cry series. Far Cry 5 is available for PS4, Xbox One and PC now, with Far Cry 6 on the way next year.
Currently, Studio Beans has an unexpected development title which is published by Devolver Digital, but the team must first hire for certain positions required in their Toronto site. Gabriela Salvatore left Ubisoft in 2016 after four years and Dean Evans left Ubisoft in 2018 after 12 years. The two developers have experience in the major Ubisoft franchises such as Far Cry. Salvatore has spent time with Creative Assembly as a game designer on the Total War franchise since his departure from Ubisoft, but he is now embarking on independent development with the next unexpected game published by Devolver Digital.
“Many people complain about AAA activity and lack of risk -taking, that I would be a hypocrite F * @ # ING if I advanced and took no risk,” said Dean Evans when he left Ubisoft. “Then f ^ & * it, I think I could go create my own studio and see where it is going. Apparently Dean Evans is a developer of his word now that Beans has been officially unveiled and we can’t wait to see how the management of a studio works for him and Gabriela Salvatore.
