The lights are on
Former Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling, who left his previous employer because there was “Too much ‘pew pew’ not enough new new,” announced his and Mighty Rabbit Studios' new game, Breach & Clear, today.
The tactical strategy game gives players control of special operations forces from around the world in a number of missions centered on taking out terrorist groups.
“We're hoping to change the conversation about what denotes a mobile game,” says Bowling, executive producer of Breach & Clear. “With Breach & Clear, we’ve taken the design principles of creating a major console release and transferred that to a title that just so happens to be launching on mobile devices. Our focus is to take a gameplay experience and mechanic that is built from the ground up for mobile or touch control and enhance it with the depth and progression you'd expect from a AAA console release."
Breach & Clear will be available on iOS and Android in spring 2013.

Huh... design principles for a major console release, developed on a mobile platform. And then he says the opposite, that it's built for mobile and enhanced with things you'd expect from a console. Interesting.
I also find it ironic that the guy who said there was too much 'pew pew' goes and develops a game with guns.
