About The Studio

NetEase Games, alongside award-winning game developer Greg Street, announced today the formation of Fantastic Pixel Castle and the start of development for the team’s first game, a AAA MMO codenamed Ghost, which is set in a new fantasy universe. Street formerly served as lead systems designer at Blizzard Entertainment for World of Warcraft and was most recently the executive producer on the League of Legends MMO at Riot Games. Street is joined by a founding team with a passion for the MMO genre and decades of experience working on massively successful games including World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Guild Wars 2, Fortnite, Overwatch, and Valorant. 

Fantastic Pixel Castle is embracing a remote-first structure and will be actively seeking talent and hiring qualified candidates. The studio will provide each individual the autonomy and support needed to bring Ghost to life. 

About Fantastic Pixel Castle and Ghost

“With Fantastic Pixel Castle and Ghost, we want to demonstrate our commitment to open communication and development in front of players,” said Greg Street, studio head of Fantastic Pixel Castle. “MMOs are arguably one of the most challenging genres of games to make, but we have some big advantages. We are a fully remote studio, allowing us to hire the best game developers, and we plan to stay small, so that we can iterate on our design quickly. We also want to show the game early and often to the community and make sure we are on the right track to incorporate constant feedback. This is possible because NetEase Games is a strategic partner that understands our vision, and gives us the creative autonomy, resources and support to be successful.”

“Fantastic Pixel Castle is bringing some of the best MMO talent available to NetEase Games to develop this original fantasy IP, and they will have our full support to make this vision a reality,” says Simon Zhu, president of global investments and partnerships at NetEase Games.
