It's no secret that Trion
has big plans for its future, and we don't just mean its impressive Storm Legion
sequel for RIFT
. Gamasutra talked to Trion CEO Lars Buttler
at last week's E3
, and what emerged from the discussion is a portrait of a firm "at the height of our art form, but doing new things."
One of those new things is a partnership with Crytek
to publish its new Warface
shooter. Another is its previously announced Red Door
initiative. Interestingly, and despite developing Defiance
for both PC and console platforms, Buttler perceives the console market as a sinking ship.
The company also sees "that the console market is going down," he tells Gamasutra. "I think the writing is on the wall and the best developers will want to make the step sooner."
