Massive Twitch streamer Michael “shroud” Grzesiek is officially becoming the latest creator to back a new game development project, he announced today.

Shroud is teaming up with fellow streamer Sacriel, and both streamers are partnering with developers Splash Damage to work on Project Astrid, “a AAA open-world survival game.” Shroud said in his announcement that it’s been his dream to make his own game and that his goal is to “build the best game ever.”

The trio of shroud, Sacriel, and Splash Damage are putting high expectations on the the recently announced title. Splash Damage creative director Lance Winter said “we’ve got the ability to do something really new in survival, build an IP from the ground up,… hopefully this is going to be a one-in-a million game.”

The Splash Damage studio was created in 2001 and established its multiplayer prowess with both Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. The company has worked on the multiplayer aspects of several prolific franchises including Doom, Gears of War, and Halo, while also developing titles like Brink, Dirty Bomb, and Gears Tactics. Splash Damage is also working on a Transformers game currently.
