Before becoming the CEO of Darewise Entertainment, Benjamin was a successful investment banker who left the industry in order to pursue his love for video games. He joined Ubisoft as a Producer and Director on Assassin’s Creed before deciding to follow his passion and form an international team of video game veterans to make Darewise Entertainment.
Benjamin’s favorite video game is CounterStrike, which he played competitively.
David is passionate about video games and assisting the team in reaching their full potential. With a myriad of game companies under his belt, such as Bungie, Certain Affinity, Crytek, and Telltale, David left the USA to move to Paris with his family to join the company. Acting as Darewise’s VP of Product, he is responsible for the creative and production output.
Aside from his affinity for video games, David practiced and taught Judo, the Japanese martial arts, for 25 years.
Having lived in 3 different countries working on critically acclaimed titles such as The Division and Ghost Recon, Samuel returned to his native country of France to become the Technical Director of Darewise. Utilising his past experiences as team leader on game engines like CryEngine and SnowDrop, he is leading the team as they revolutionize the gaming industry.
When he’s not fixing bugs or programming code, Samuel enjoys cycling and drinking whiskey sours (although not at the same time).
Darewise Entertainment is a VC-backed AAA games studio with one goal: to revolutionize online games.
Based in Paris and led by the creative vision of Viktor Antonov (Valve, Bethesda), David Bowman (Bungie, Telltale, Crytek) and Benjamin Charbit (Ubisoft), we combine international experience and disruptive creativity to deliver the games of tomorrow.
