EA Is Partnering Up With Silver Rain Games

Silver Rain Games is a fairly new indie studio created by Assassin’s Creed Origins’s Bayek, Abubakar Salim, and BAFTA games program manager Melissa Phillips, and its debut game is underway. Electronic Arts are partnering with the studio to bring its very first title into its library of EA Originals.

When speaking to GameSpot, Salim said, “It speaks volumes – the fact that you can’t actually define the genre of what [EA Originals] has built. That’s the beauty of the art form of what they support and build. There’s a freedom that the EA and Originals team bring that allows you as the developer to truly find the strengths and weaknesses of what you bring to the table. At the end of the day, it’s the developer’s game.”

However, it’s unclear if this partnership will continue. For now, Silver Rain Games and EA’s collaboration is only for the studio’s first title. It could very well be that they find a partner in the likes of someone else next, much like how FromSoftware has bounced from Sony to Bandai Namco to Activision.

The upcoming title from Silver Rain Games is still unannounced, but Phillips did say, “We want to tell you; we totally want to tell you. It goes back to what we as a studio are just trying to do. We’re trying to bring thought-provoking content. We’re trying to bring enjoyable content. We’re trying to bring things that people want to escape from, but also just can’t get enough of.”

EA Originals is all about giving indie titles a platform, so it’s no surprise then that, like with Josef Fares’s Hazelight Studios’s upcoming game, it’s taken on the likes of Silver Rain. “We couldn’t be happier to work with the EA Originals team, who are phenomenal partners.”
