With the recent acquisition
of Gas Powered Games
, we have been wondering what direction the Age of Empires Online
studio would be taking. According to a new interview on Gamasutra
, CEO Chris Taylor
says that the team has moved on to work on an untitled MMO.
This mystery MMO is still in the early stages, Taylor said: "We're just getting going on it, and there's a lot of groundwork to do. But we're barreling ahead."
Calling it a "big free-to-play MMO under the Wargaming name," Taylor said the game has fired back up the studio and allowed the re-hiring of laid-off employees. He also said that Wargaming.net has been a "great match" for Gas Powered Games.
