What's next for BioWare's Arnie Jorgensen
, Alex Thomas
, and John Watson
? A new RPG/RTS hybrid called The Banner Saga
, according to Kotaku
The trio spent the past half decade slaving away on Star Wars: The Old Republic
, and now they're striking out on their own to make an indie title described as "roleplaying meets turn-based strategy, wrapped into an adventure miniseries about vikings."
Watson was SWTOR's
lead combat programmer, while Thomas and Jorgensen filled the senior environment artist and lead concept artist roles, respectively. The trio has formed an indie studio called Stoic
, and the company's maiden offering is apparently "coming soon."
