FoxNext is a video game, virtual reality and theme park division announced in January 2017 by 20th Century Fox. It operates under Twentieth Century Fox Film and the Fox Networks Group. FoxNext is focused on next generation storytelling, and was created in response to the success of the mobile game The Simpsons: Tapped Out and the PC game Alien: Isolation and the growing opportunity with virtual reality as ways to create revenue from their existing properties. It will handle development and publishing of video games, virtual reality and augmented reality titles, as well as the development of 20th Century Fox's theme and amusement parks, including 20th Century Fox World (Malaysia). The division's president is Salil Mehta, a former executive from NBCUniversal and The Walt Disney Company, who has been with Fox since 2013.[1] On June 6, 2017, it acquired Aftershock Studios (formerly Kabam's Los Angeles and San Francisco studios)[2] On July 27, 2017, FoxNext Games announced that they were developing an action/RPG multiplayer mobile game in conjunction with Marvel Entertainment and Aftershock Studios on the Marvel Universe.
