= 85 Productions - Renamed =
William Faure from '85 Productions' has announced the renaming of his Wolfenstein-focused company and provided us with an update on his projects in development. Here's what he had to say:
You may ask yourself the reason for the name change. Well, this is a tribute to 'Gray Matter Interactive', the defunct company behind the development of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, which was founded on March 25, 1993, by Drew Markham and Barry Dempsey. In 2018, founder Drew Markham passed away at the age of 59. Without him, Return to Castle Wolfenstein wouldn't have seen the light of day and I have decided to pay him tribute in many ways ever since.
As you previously read, instead of the anatomic title, 'Gray matter', I've chosen to go with the physical cosmology-styled title of, "Dark matter". Let me explain. Gray Matter Interactive may have opted to use 'Gray matter', a major component of the central nervous system, due to the fact that playing video games leads to brain stimulation. I've chosen 'Dark matter' for 'Dark Matter Productions' as a way to refer to what started, nearly a decade ago for the company, its very own 'big bang', 'The Dark Army'.
Thus, I can only hope that all of you will like this new 'signature' and the reasoning behind it. Also, expect a huge status update regarding our mods on May 28th, the day of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory's 17th anniversary:
The Dark Army: Uprising - Remastered
Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Single-Player & Cooperative
The Dark Army 2: Downfall
More details will be shared in the coming weeks so, in the meantime, please make sure to stay tuned. It's gonna be well worth the wait! - William Faure
