Michael Bay joins VR studio Rogue Initiative

Rogue Initiative, the VR studio founded by Call of Duty, Dreamworks, and Pixar veterans, is making good on its claims that they would collaborate with Hollywood directors by bringing Michael Bay into the fold.

Former Call of Duty producer, Pete Blumel, said, “I’ve enjoyed a longstanding relationship with Mr. Bay and couldn’t be more excited to work with him and truly leverage his unique vision and incredible depth of experience to this amazing new medium. We’re all absolutely thrilled to be working with such a cinematic powerhouse in the field of action entertainment.”

Michael Bay is joining The Rogue Initiative as a strategic advisor, and is joined by veteran film and television Producer Linda Obst, whom you may recall from her work on Interstellar, and Contact.

“I’ve known Pete for a long time, and he’s put together a great team,” said Bay. ” I’m excited about building new visual worlds for this innovative medium with them.”
