Sci-fi MMORPG Project C announced with Thief and Half-Life 2 devs at the helm


Let us make an already interesting MMO news day a bit more so, shall we? How about the introduction of a brand-new, full-fledged MMORPG in development with AAA credentials and some notable game industry vets at the helm?

The game in question is code-named Project C, a sci-fi MMO that takes place on a single-shard hostile world. It sounds incredibly intriguing and not afraid of to embrace the massively multiplayer experience:

Project C invites the players to explore, conquer and dominate a massive hostile persistent sci-fi world. The game offers players genuine innovation in game design with emphasis on emergent memorable gameplay moments: a single-shard virtual world, continuously updated with new chapters of the game’s story, containing a fully simulated ecosystem of creatures and resources, in which player choices create permanent changes.

The title is being developed by France-based Darewise Entertainment and under the eye of Randy Smith (Thief series) and Viktor Antonov (Half-Life 2, Dishonored). The studio already has a large team but is “actively recruiting” more talent for the game. Darewise signed a technology partnership last month with SpatialOS to use its technology in Project C and other titles.

“Project C is the first step of this ambitious journey, to become a quality-first independent company, competing in the AAA field with truly innovative experiences,” said CEO Benjamin Charbit. “Our inspiration comes from companies such as Pixar or Bungie, who have been committed to quality and amazing company culture since day one.”
