Notorious Studio Announcement

A new studio made up of several former Blizzard developers was announced today. Named “Notorious Studios”, the studio will focus on multiplayer games with fantasy RPG elements and combat. So, it’s possible we’re looking at some form of MMO. Of course, the studio just launched and has a team of nine people, Ten if you count the dog, so it’s probably going to be some time before we hear about a project.

The majority of the team all worked on World of Warcraft at one point or another and apparently were all in the same guild – which the new company is named after. Between them, they have experience in everything from art to level design to engineering. That said, they do have a few other slots they’d like to have filled and jobs are listed on the site.

Interestingly, the site also lists a few investors and among them is Riot Games. The other two consist of Galaxy Interactive and 1up Ventures.

Ashes of Creation and Marvel Heroes (on launch) were enough for me to realize that just because someone made something great in the past, it doesn't mean they can work the same miracle again. So my excitement is non-existent.
