The team at Dontnod Entertainment has had some success with Life is Strange, and to a lesser extent with Remember Me. Now the company has unveiled a new studio dubbed Dontnod Eleven that is working on a multiplayer platformer called Battlecrew Space Pirates.

Not too many details are available other than it will be a competitive multiplayer shooter designed with "community features, events and challenges." The game is slated for Steam Early Access where players will get their hands on a large part of the game so they can offer feedback.

As for the new studio, Dontnod had been collaborating with a company called HeSaw. The partnership grew enough that Dontnod renamed HeSaw and made it a spinoff.

"The goal of our collaboration is to help those talented independent developers and benefit from their know-how," said Dontonod CEO Oskar Guilbert. "They’ve been working on this game for about a year and we’re happy to help them achieve their goal of releasing this fun, exciting and innovative gaming experience.”

As for Dontnod, it is currently working on a Vampyr RPG, and just recently released Life is Strange Episode One Chrysalis across all platforms.
