Silver Rain Games just signed a deal with Electronic Arts. BAFTA-nominated actor and producer Abubakar Salim co-founded the game studio.
According to Electronic Arts, EA Originals will provide funding for the up-and coming studio’s unannounced IP, as well as “guidance and support in the team’s journey to bring a fresh perspective to games and to the industry.”
Silver Rain is based in the United Kingdom. Salim co-founded it in December 2019. He is best known for his role on HBO’s hit show Raised by Wolves, alongside Melissa Phillips, who will lead as Head of Studio. She previously worked as the BAFTA Games Programme manager on BAFTA Games programs and events.
“In what has been a challenging year, we have assembled an extraordinarily creative and worldly team who are eager to work on projects that bring their global perspectives to life. Together we will construct an exciting universe that unlocks the power of storytelling and the brilliance that brings,” said Salim.
“We couldn’t be happier to work with the EA Originals team, who are phenomenal partners for us as we begin this journey. Not only does each of them understand our vision to inspire and entertain, but they also welcome this exciting new age of game development,” Salim adds.
“We have spent the last year really growing our team and have some exceptionally talented people supporting us on putting this game together. I am so excited to see the team grow again and really have the opportunity to showcase the quality of the work they are creating,” Phillips said.
