Ex-Runic Studios developer Max Schaefer, ex-Blizzard developers Tyler Thompson (Project Lead on Diablo: Lord of Destruction) and David Glenn (Art Director on Diablo 1 and 2 and art for Hellgate: London) have formed a new studio called Echtra Inc. Our own Bill Murphy spoke with the new team to find out more.
Here's what we know:
- Echtra is from Old Irish literature and means "Adventures in the Other World"
- While we don't know what type of game is being made, it's probable that it will be "action-y" and "RPG-y"
The team is not quite ready to speak more about the project but something is coming that will be sure to please RPG, MMO and ARPG fans everywhere.
We'll keep you posted!
