It was founded in 2003 by Alexander Seropian—the co-founder of Bungie and head behind the games Halo: Combat Evolved, Myth, and Marathon and 6 other former Bungie Studios employees 3 years after Bungie's acquisition by Microsoft Corporation.
Wideload focuses on a core team and many external developers in
developing games. The goal was to counteract the growing development
costs associated with the current game industry, and to prove that
smaller companies with relatively modest funds could make a game that
could still sell well compared to releases from larger corporations.
Wideload's first project was Stubbs the Zombie in "Rebel Without a Pulse", a 3D-action-adventure game
in which the player takes control of the zombie Stubbs in a plot filled
with black humor. It uses a heavily modified version of the Halo Engine. It was published in fall 2005 for Macintosh, Windows-PCs, and Microsoft's Xbox by Aspyr Media.
Their sophomore project, Hail to the Chimp, was released June 23, 2008 by Gamecock Media Group for seventh-generation consoles.
Additionally, Wideload has recently released information on their new
group, Wideload Shorts. Wideload Shorts will be making smaller games
systems like Xbox Live Arcade. The first game from Wideload Short, Cyclomite, was released in March 2008 on the InstantAction game platform.
Wideload Games was acquired on September 8, 2009 by The Walt Disney Company. Under the Disney Interactive name, Wideload will develop original video game properties for Disney. They most recently developed Guilty Party
