RETROSPECTIVE OF A GREAT 2015
With 2015 coming to a close, Virtuos is ending the year on a high note! Looking at our 2015 co-development track record, we have set new high standards of quality in shipping Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD on PS4 . This Japanese RPG scored an impressive 87% on Metacritic, which places it at the very top of the list of all time high scores obtained for an HD remaster. On the game Art side, Virtuos year’s top achievements included work on AAA titles that have earned 4 of this year’s “IGN Best of E3 2015 Awards” as well as the recently released Metal Gear Solid the Phantom Pain, Black Ops III, Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Rainbow Six Siege and Just Cause 3 to name but a few. Finally this year, our Virtuos movie team produced top quality assets for 5 blockbuster films, including Avengers: Age of Ultron and Jurassic World. Topping off our amazing year in films, we are of course thrilled that the tremendously anticipated Star Wars The Force Awakens, has recently released in theatres with 3D asset support from Virtuos. Though we cannot mention all of the fantastic projects we worked on this year – there were indeed many! A big “thank you” to all of our studio partners for your valued trust and partnership. It truly allows us to work in a more integrated and efficient way and motivates us to raise the bar higher, with each and every project.
