Intrepid Studios Inc. is a San Diego based game studio working on the MMORPG Ashes of Creation.[4]

Intrepid Studios was founded by Steven Sharif and John Moore, passionate gamers and successful entrepreneurs, who took their knowledge of business and passion for games and set out on a mission to make a gaming company that would build the games players want. Steven Sharif, set out to bring aboard a team of industry veterans, with a clear vision for the company’s first project. These titans of the industry hail from many backgrounds, but all share two common threads: AAA MMORPG development experience, and a passion for building the games players want.[5]


Everyone at Intrepid is focused on building games that help bring people together. Part of what makes us who we are is that ability to connect with others, and we adhere to this design principle throughout our development process. Since the beginning, Intrepid has held to the philosophy of making games with no pay-to-win or cash grab elements – we respect our players and believe that these tactics aren’t necessary if we simply build games that players want to play. That philosophy, combined with a commitment to transparency and communication with our community, reflects the most important values that we as developers can uphold.[5]

Intrepid Studios has embraced an open (transparent) development approach, rather than sharing information through carefully curated press releases and announcements.[6]

I don't answer to a board. I don't answer to a publisher. We answer to our players; and we try to be as transparent as possible with showing our progress; and showing it in a timely manner.[7]Steven Sharif

I think that we live in an age where it's easy to be transparent if you're not trying to hide something. The downside is if you're showing something that's not a completed or finished product, it is incumbent upon the viewer to understand that fact.[6]Steven Sharif

There are obviously going to be some aspects of the development that we will not reveal, like lore and some system mechanics in order not to spoil the game for release.[8][9]Steven Sharif

Intrepid Studios wird Ashes of Creation in den Regionen NA (Nordamerika), OCE (Ozeanien) und SEA (Südostasien) selbst veröffentlichen.[15][16]


My.com (Mail.ru) wird Ashes of Creation in den Regionen EU (Europäische Union), RU (Russland) und CIS veröffentlichen.[17]

Intrepid wird zu 100% die kreative Kontrolle über Ashes behalten und unsere Partner My.com und Mail.ru teilen unsere Vision für Ashes, was sehr wichtig für uns war. Das bedeutet unsere Haltung gegenüber p2w für das Spiel. Diese Partnerschaft ermöglicht es uns als Studio, uns komplett auf die Entwicklung des Spiels zu konzentrieren und wir fühlen uns beruhigt bezüglich des Serviceniveau, das My.com und Mail.ru unserer glorreichen Community bieten können.[18]Steven Sharif

Heute habe ich bestätigt, dass das Geschäftsmodell Abo-basiert & ohne Vorabkosten sein wird, ausschließlich ein Shop für Cosmetics (wie bei NA).[19]Steven Sharif


Das Ashes of Creation MMORPG wird nicht auf der Plattform Steam veröffentlicht.[20]


The gaming industry can be a turbulent storm of hiring cycles and layoffs. We’ve set out to do something different, to break this cycle and create an independent studio capable of withstanding the chaos of this industry. We’ve brought on-board a team of professionals that hold a diverse set of skills, and who all share a singular goal: making fun games. The studio is designed to be an open place for collaboration and communication, a place that is conducive to team building and success. Our goal is to build a family that will laugh together, play together, succeed together, and stay together.[5]
