Echtra is an independently run studio of veteran game developers* located in San
Francisco’s SoMa district. Founded with solid corporate backing in early 2016,
we’re building a big world based on a beloved gaming franchise.
At Echtra we value individual ownership and creativity. We have a clear long-term
vision for the game, and trust and rely on our people to take the lead on making
that vision come true. We use tools that support remote work and make it easy to
schedule around life’s demands. We offer flexible scheduling and everyone takes
the time they need for family and personal interests.
We’re building a huge world to explore and adventures to share with friends for
years to come. We’ll be adding content and features long after launch, and going
global with PC and console versions. We’re carefully choosing when to innovate
versus adopting proven solutions. Using existing technologies like the Unreal
engine for heavy lifting lets us focus on the unique things only we can do: build
an insanely fun and exciting world to play in.
* Veterans? Yes really! Our team has shipped games with: Runic Games, Blizzard
Entertainment, Maxis, Undead Labs, EA, and more.
