"As a huge fan of Prey, I am psyched to have the opportunity to watch Human Head enhance our vision and bring it to life," said Ecko. "It's sort of like drawing up the play for the 'to win' basket and having Jordan there to execute it to perfection."
"When we first met with Marc's team, we were excited by the creative vision that they brought to the table and the fact that they weren't afraid to take risks," said Human Head president Paul MacArthur. "We're ready to give players a brand new ride."
Ecko became involved in the games industry with his contributions to The Collective's Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure (PS2, Xbox, PC), released last year by Atari. The founding of Marc Ecko Entertainment, a division of Marc Ecko Enterprises, was announced earlier this month. Ecko himself will contribute to the studio's projects, with Marc Fernandez heading up its creative direction. Previously, Fernandez contributed to Getting Up as well as to Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (PS2, Xbox, PC) and Rockstar San Diego's Midnight Club II (PS2, Xbox, PC).
