    The former studio head and creative director for the Halo franchise at 343 Industries, Josh Holmes, has formed new game studio Midwinter Entertainment. The developer has announced a multiplayer "co-opetition" team battle game, Scavengers.

    Midwinter Entertainment has developers that have worked on Halo 5: GuardiansBattlefield 1Halo 4Battlefield 4Halo: ReachBattlefield 3, and Call of Duty: WWII.

    Here is an overview of the game:

    Scavengers puts players in the role of young survivors fighting in a not-so-distant future, where cataclysmic events have triggered a new ice age. The game will combine exploration, survival and combat elements, while maintaining a focus on teamwork and cooperative game mechanics.

    By dividing the action between multiple servers in the cloud, all of which contribute to building and running a seamless and consistent world, SpatialOS allows more sophisticated artificial intelligence, more AI entities and players occupying a seamless, shared environment, and a larger, more detailed and more deeply simulated game world than can be supported by the traditional client-server architecture used in online gaming.

    Players will begin each game by equipping their scavenger, exploring the wilds, fighting and allying with other human players to complete objectives, gathering resources and battling against AI-controlled enemy factions. Large and unpredictable AI populations, combined with the balance of co-operation and competition between the human players, will create rich, repeatable gameplay.
