Dr. Disrespect, plenty of peoples favorite streamer, is starting his own video game development studio. Disrespect, also known as Herschel “Guy” Beahm posted a job listing on his website, which he titled “Life Changing Opportunity.” It says that Beahm, in partnership with BoomTV, is looking to make shake up the game industry by making a AA/AAA studio.
The studio is not directly named in the job listing but the Google form application is titled “BoomTV Game Studio Head Application.” The studio wants to work with “mega influencers” to help them develop the games of their dreams. The studio plans to develop these games internally or co-develop them with already established studios. Beahm is looking for a studio head with at least 5+ years of producing experience, as well as experience launching games to audiences of over 100,000. The offer for this position is actually quite good, giving a co-founder position, high equity, and a competitive salary.
The listing also states that the studio head “will work within a fast-paced environment, spearheading design, art, core gaming loops, meta, viral and retention loops and iterate monetization, go to market, integrated esports and influencer marketing.” Of course, this implies a multiplayer title that appeals to the competitive community.
Based on the description, it seems Beahm is in the extremely early stages of starting a studio, as he’s still in the process of hiring a studio head. Beahm hasn’t exactly been on his best behavior as a streamer, including being permanently banned from Twitch. Beahm was previously a game developer for Call of Duty, so it makes sense that he might eventually take the leap at some point. Whatever game will eventually be produced, will make its way to PC and console, as is described in the lisitng.
