Asmodee Announces New Studio: Unexpected Games

Asmodee USA recently announced Unexpected Games, a new studio headed by designer Corey Konieczka, which will be focused on “innovation and idea incubation.”

Konieczka, who joined Fantasy Flight Games in 2005 and has designed notable titles such as Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game, Star Wars: Rebellion, and Mansions of Madness: First Edition, has departed his role as VP of Research & Design at FFG to take the lead on this new project.

According to Konieczka, “Our goal is to create games that are novel, fun, and accessible. We hope to surprise people and create experiences that they’ve never had before.”

While the details about the first game to be released under the Unexpected Games brand are still relatively under wraps, it is expected to be released in 2020 and, according to Konieczka, it will be a “multilayered experience that tells a story in a unique way.”
