BioWare studio veterans form new studio to work on a new MMORPG.
A group of former developers from BioWare, who were instrumental in the creation of Star Wars: The Old Republic, the Star Wars themed MMORPG from EA, have announced that they have formed a new studio today, and that they will be working on a new multiplayer game.
The studio is called QC Games, and it is based out of Austin, Texas. The studio is comprised of BioWare veterans who worked on games such as Shadow Realms, Rock Band, Dragon Age, Fable, and of course, Star Wars: The Old Republic. They will be working with Nexon for their new title.
“This agreement marks another milestone in growing our business in key markets, leveraging both the talents of our developer partners and our own knowledge of online games to provide AAA experiences that are customized for global tastes and audiences,” Nexon president and CEO Owen Mahoney said in a statement. “Dallas and the team of veterans he’s building at QC Games have played a part in creating some of the world’s most successful games, and we’re looking forward to helping them bring another hit title to market.”
“Having the freedom to bring our vision to life is paramount to me and my team, and working with Nexon America provides us creative control as well as deep support from a partner who understands the online market better than anyone else,” QC Games head Dallad Dickinson said. “Our goal as a studio is to create the highest quality games possible, and I feel this partnership, along with the first-class team who has joined me so far at QC Games, will make that a reality.”
As to what QC games created, we will keep you posted. Stay tuned.
