Garriott to Make Online Fantasy Game?

Garriott to Make Online Fantasy Game?

BBC News has run an article interview Game industry notables, including Peter Molyneux, Paul Barnett, and Richard Garriott, where they talk about the year that was in the gaming industry.

In the article Richard Garriott confirms he's planning on coming back to the game industry to work on a new game that is "probably medieval fantasy and probably online."

"For me, the high point - quite literally - was spending 12 days on the International Space Station. As a result, I've been somewhat outside the gaming scene; I was in quarantine for nearly three months in 2008.

That said, Halo's sequel was a big deal. World of Warcraft continues to dominate the massive multiplayer arena - more power to them. If I had to pick a developer who has done a bang up job, it would be Blizzard [the development team behind World of Warcraft]. The number of people they have converted is just amazing. They have shown all of us what good game development is all about.

After 25 years at Origin, the last thing I wanted to make was yet another medieval fantasy game. Now, after a very interesting break, I'm keen to get back into the fray and work on a new game. Probably medieval fantasy and probably online; there's something very powerful about getting people together."
