New World Interactive was originally founded in 2010, with humble beginnings as a small ambitious team. Its core members were heavily involved in a series of successful total conversion mods, including Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat and Red Orchestra. The team was inexperienced with developing commercial games, but found themselves greatly inspired and motivated by the successes of other mod-turned-games of the time.
The launch of Insurgency in January of 2014 was the culmination of these efforts. The game, true to its name, defied what many people considered to be standard for first-person shooter games. The interface did away with on-screen crosshairs and other less-than-critical elements in favor of immersion, and the experience revolved around objectives which required coordination between players. Insurgency was one of the top selling and most highly played games on Steam in 2014. Today, Insurgency has sold over 5.5 million units and has a 90% rating on Steam, and you can also find thousands of people playing at any given moment.
With Insurgency’s success, the young company was propelled into a period of growth. Between 2014 and 2017 the team grew from 18 developers located all around the world into a team double the size with a studio where the core team worked. During this period NWI developed free content for the Insurgency community while also experimenting with new projects. Day of Infamy was one of the projects that emerged during this time, taking Insurgency’s gameplay and bringing it to World War II. The other project would eventually become what is now Insurgency: Sandstorm, the Unreal Engine 4 based sequel
