Ten dudes in Reno have started a new development studio, Colony. Why should you care? Because these ten dudes are some of the most knowledgable, talented designers of MMOs in history. We're talking guys who created/maintained World of Warcraft, City of Heroes, Dark Age of Camelot, Lord of the Rings Online, anUltima Online, EVE Online and The Fallen.
Yeah. They're making a new MMO. And yeah. It's gonna be awesome.
Colony is creating "A unique, space-based sci-fi MMOG that will contain immersive gameplay mechanics, innovative design, and truly unique content. It will captivate players, create social ties, and push the genre itself."
The unnamed game comes out in 2009. We predict big things.
