The company is based back in Irvine, right near Blizzard. Bonfire does not have a game in development yet, but they are hiring like crazy. Pardo says, that the company will make online multiplayer games: mobile, PCs or both. Right not the company’s focus is entirely on hiring the best possible talent to start generating ideas and making game prototypes. Pardo is joined by several former colleagues: Min Kim, Nick Carpenter, Josh Mosqueira, Matthew Versluys.

“We don’t want to be constrained by genre. We really want to create games that help us make those deeper connections with each other”, – Mr. Pardo said to NYT.

Pardo was inspired to create a start-up after the creation of Hearthstone, which became a huge success. He wants to go to the old days, where the companies were still small and ideas could bounce off quickly.
