Venture Beat talks with Scott Hartsman, a former Sony Online Entertainment executive and general manager of Trion’s studio in Redwood City, Calif., which is developing Rift: Planes of Telara.
Venture Beat interviews, Lars Buttler, Chief Executive of Trion Worlds, talking about what the company is doing with both its platform and its new games.
After more than four years of toil, Trion Worlds is raising the curtain today on three major online games that collectively represent one of the most daring bets in video game history.
Many established game companies struggle to make just one massively multiplayer online game at a time. But this startup has raised more than $100 million and hired a team of 250 people across three studios so that it can produce big games in parallel.
The three PC-based titles are Rift: Planes of Telara; End of Nations, real-time military strategy game set in the near future; and an unnamed title that Trion Worlds is jointly producing with NBC’s SyFy Channel. The first two are hitting in 2011, while the third is sometime later than the first two.
