Unannounced Austin MMO Studio Closes

Posted Oct 26, 2009 by Dana Massey

Unannounced Austin MMO Studio Closes

Another sign of the troubled economic times hit home today when it came out that an unannounced MMO studio in Austin, TX had been closed. This group included Lead Designer Scott Jennings, aka "Lum the Mad," formerly of Mythic, NCsoft and, of course, blogging fame.

There was not much known about what the team had been working on, and it appears that we will never officially know for sure. Unlike many studios with unannounced projects, these guys were not even allowed to tell us what company was behind the whole thing.

The only hints we're likely to get was what Jennings posted on his blog: "I’m still a bit sore since I think what we were working on was pretty damned cool (if nothing else, it was *nothing* like World of Warcraft) and I’m a sad panda that it won’t make it out the door."

Check out Scott's blog post on it all here.
