The Initiative is a new game development studio located blocks from the beach in sunny Santa Monica, CA. Our Mission is to create ambitious and innovative game experiences that our audience will love. We are passionate about craft, creating stories, and building the next big thing in gaming.

We are a tight knit team of experienced creators bound by the desire to push the art of video games forward. We work in an inspirational space in Santa Monica where we can immerse ourselves in the creative process. We operate as an independent studio under the banner and financial backing of Xbox Game Studios and Microsoft.

Everything we do comes from a passion for innovation and the ambition to create something groundbreaking. We believe that teamwork, diversity of thought, and a personal drive to build something great are the keys to our success.
