In fact, this information was reported from Gameindustry.biz which asked Elliot on the new partnership.
“I’m really excited that we’re taking this step to deepen our partnership with the team at Bulkhead… From the first meeting we had back in 2015 it was clear to me that the team had a great deal of potential, and we’re really looking forward to helping them continue to unlock that in the years to come.”
In addition, Bulkhead’s CEO Joe Brammer also commented on the new partnership and how positive it has been.
“It’s been a great experience working with Phil and the team at Square Enix – they’ve always been supportive, looking out for the interests of us as well as the games we’ve worked on, and this opportunity to build on that relationship is a great next step for the studio as we expand and search for new talent to join our team.”
