Is this the greatest online gaming news ever?! More or less anyway.
A MMORPG based on the World of Darkness? By CCP… A dream come true.
Reykjavik, Iceland and Atlanta, GA, USA – November 11, 2006 – CCP hf. and White Wolf Publishing, Inc. today announced that the companies have entered into a definitive agreement to merge. The creators of the single largest persistent online role-playing world and the world’s second-largest developer of offline role-playing, strategy and collectable card games will create the industry’s largest independent Virtual World developer. CCP is the publisher and developer of EVE Online, the world’s largest virtual gaming universe. White Wolf is the creator of some of the world’s most recognized role-playing titles including: World of Darkness (Vampire, Werewolf, Mage) and Exalted. The combined company will introduce new online and offline gaming products across the science-fiction, horror, and fantasy genres.
White Wolf will leverage CCP’s industry-leading technologies to bring its offline role-playing titles online. Conceptualization and early development has begun to bring White Wolf’s World of Darkness, one of the world’s strongest gaming properties, into the online world.
This marks the official start of this website where I will continue following the development of the upcoming WoD project. There will be other game (or movie) related blogs from time to time as well.
