Foundation 9 has announced that its Southern California studio, merged from former developers The Collective and Shiny, will now be known as Double Helix. The merger was announced in October of 2007, with Foundation 9 saying the new studio would "enable greater capacity to create large-scale games based on big licensed properties." Shiny, at the time, was working on multiplatform title The Golden Compass for a holiday release by Sega, while the Collective continues work with Konami on Silent Hill 5. In this latest release, the company says Double Helix is working on three large-scale, multi-platform licensed games, including Silent Hill. The publisher says the new merged studio "has combined the existing studios' proprietary technologies, production best practices and talented teams into a single entity that is now able to build upon its previous experience to gain new heights in quality and efficiency." Said studio head Michael Saxs Persson, "Making games is in our DNA. The Double Helix name is perfect for our studio because it invokes the thought of two studios coming together to build a powerful new force in game development."
