Threewave pioneered "Capture the Flag" for the online shooter genre in 1996 for id Software’s Quake and its successors Quake II and Quake III Arena. Recently Gamasutra recognized Threewave in their Quantum Leap Awards: The Most Important Multiplayer Games of All Time by noting that Threewave CTF for Quake "directly influenced just about every team based shooter ever made, even if it's not always obvious".
We continue to build on this proud legacy through our focus on excellence in online multiplayer for the First-Person Shooter genre. Threewave is responsible for some of the most compelling multiplayer gameplay, and has been at the forefront in the creation of innovative multiplayer styles and game modes for many of the hottest games in the last 10 years.

Our expertise knows no bounds; light-saber battles on Bespin and Hoth, quelling Nazi insurrection in WWII Africa, infiltrating European and South American hideouts of known evil-doers, repelling the forces of Hell on Mars, or battling Dinosaurs on a mysterious jungle planet, Threewave has been there creating content for gamers who will settle for nothing less than a top notch multiplayer experience.
