Noted industry artist Thom Ang has started work at 38 Studios
as Director of Art, according to a press release
from the company. He has joined company founder and pro baseball player Curt Schilling, comic book artist Todd McFarlane, and fantasy author R.A. Salvatore to work on Copernicus, a secretive MMO project.
Ang has previously been employed by THQ
, where he worked on several titles including Disney
adaptations, and Electronic Arts
, where he worked on the Medal of Honor
series. He's just another of many samples
of veteran blood
the studio has attracted.
Details about Copernicus
are hush-hush. We know 38 Studios
is using the BigWorld
engine technologies. There have been hints in interviews
about the direction the project is taking. That's about it, though.
