Bowling started Robotoki to create a game "no one else was doing yet"

Robert Bowling has reiterated he started his own development studio in order create something new and get a fresh start, thus one of the reasons he didn't join up with former Infinity Ward co-workers at Respawn.

Speaking in an interview with VentureBeat, Bowling said starting his own company allowed him to create something "no one else was doing yet."

"[Zampella and the Respawn Entertainment crew] were my role models, friends, and partners for many, many years," he said. "However, for me, it felt important to strike out and really create something completely different that I felt no one else was doing yet.

"That takes a lot of risk and a true creative clean slate, which Robotoki has allowed me to accomplish."

Bowling's new title with Robotoki, is a survival game titled Human Element, which takes place during the zombie apocalypse and it's slated for release on next-gen, PC, mobile, and tablets in 2015.

More on the game will be revealed in the July issue of Game Informer.
