Tim Cain, one of the founders of Troika Games, is finally back in the industry. He is programming director of the newly founded Carbine Studios, a dev team consisting mainly of former Blizzard employees. Cabine Studios is part of NCSoft and is currently working on an unannounced MMORPG.
The concept art on the Carbine Studios website gives some hints on the nature of their project without revealing too much.
The “Troika Chronicles” will cover this new game in the future, so stay tuned! If anyone knows of any interesting projects by former Troika people please let me know.
P.S.: Many thanks to Friede for pointing me into the right direction!
Update: There is an interesting article at the Orange County Register website about the new studio and its unannounced project: “It will be an MMOG. There will be some fantasy thrown in but it’s a cross-genre game. And there will be dancing.”
