Airship Syndicate New Game

Airship Syndicate enjoyed modest success with turn-based RPG Ruined King: A League of Legends Story, published by Riot Forge and (obviously) based on the characters and world of League of Legends. Now the Austin-based developer is striking out on its own, hiring for a game using an original IP and set in "an all-new tech-powered fantasy world."

The details -- such as they are -- can be found in the "What's Next" part of the Airship Syndicate website, which states:

"We’re crafting an all-new tech-powered fantasy world, and we're looking for passionate game devs to help bring it to life!

Our next project is a new fantasy IP owned and developed by Airship, in partnership with a publisher who specializes in building thriving online communities. Adventure is the name of the game (almost literally) and we need talented game developers to help build it."

That's followed by a link to a careers page, which repeats that second paragraph and urges you to apply "if you like action combat and adventuring online with friends." Various job postings ask for experience with Unreal Engine and "titles shipped across major platforms."

It's not a ton to go on, but the notion what sounds like an MMORPG set in a new world from an experienced developer -- with help from "a publisher who specializes in building thriving online communities" -- has its appeal. We're probably some time, possibly years, away from an official reveal, but does this sound like something you could be interested in?
