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:
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.”
