Meet the Team
Welcome back for another Project X update! First and foremost we are grateful for your continued support and belief in our mission to create a video game with our professional players, content creators and of course, our community. In order to bring any of this to life we need to build an incredible team. Where else to start but the top? With over 25 years of game development including legendary games such as Burnout Paradise, Little Big Planet and Fable, we are excited to introduce Pete Hawley to the Project X team! Here is what Pete had to say:
"The opportunity here at 100 Thieves, with Project X, is exciting. Instead of building in secret, why don’t we build and share from the outset. So as the game develops everyone feels like they’ve been along for the journey. I love that we have an established community and we can build a game for them from the start.
We will have our convictions tested, while we try and iterate many ideas for days, weeks and months. Once we find the fun, we will double down on it and that is the path we’ll take throughout. I’m excited to be here and we will talk to you all more soon!."

We're Making a Video Game
I'll never forget the feeling I had playing Halo 2. Racing home from school or work to jump into a night of ranked. Grinding for hours to level up, just to see my new icon next to my name and know I was one of the best. I can still vividly remember those games - Call of Duty, Pokemon, Starcraft - I'd never had so much fun competing with myself and playing with my friends. I’ve been thinking a lot about those games recently.
Playing those games are the moments I’ll never forget - the hours I spent laughing with my friends meant just as much as the trophies. Looking back, it was the magic of those games that made me fall in love with video games and made me realize I wanted to make this my career.
Today, I have an exciting announcement to share. It's our biggest announcement since we founded 100 Thieves back in 2017. 100 Thieves has championship esports teams, amazing content, and we're making our best apparel ever. I'm really proud of where we are and excited to keep pushing ourselves to be better. But looking back on my career, every few years I've made a big move - from competitive player to content creator to entrepreneur. I love building & creating new things and I think I've found my next challenge.
100 Thieves is making a video game.
