100 Thieves announces a video game, dubbed Project X, is now in production with former EA Sports Executive Producer helming the development.
California-based esports and apparel brand 100 Thieves are making a video game. Today, the organization’s CEO and COO – Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag and John Robinson – appeared in a video on Twitter for the official announcement. Dubbed 100 Thieves Project X, Haag, and Robinson revealed that the game’s development would encompass input from 100 Thieves’ creators, competitors, and the community.
While Robinson admitted creating a video game is a challenging task, doing so alongside those who will play the game is a recipe for success. Here’s everything we know thus far about 100 Thieves Project X.
