Former Ultima Devs Announce New Gaming Studio, DeMeta...And You Guessed It...Blockchain
Richard Garriott has jumped on the blockchain train.
If you’ve been wondering what Richard Garriott has been up to lately – other than whatever is up with Shroud of the Avatar lately – we now have your answer. He and Todd Porter, a fellow former Ultima developer and founding producer of Dungeons & Dragons, announced the launch of a new company today.
The company, DeMeta, has already kicked off the development of an online title that will be making use of blockchain technology. DeMeta is the “US arm” of DeHorizon, a company that bills itself as being “committed to becoming the next generation of metaverse game ecosystems”. Its current project is the team battle game DeVerse. If you’re the kind to wonder about this sort of thing, it’s built on the Ethereum Virtual Machine – or will be...and yes, there will be NFTs.
Currently, that’s everything we know about the project – unless you want to go into the nitty-gritty of NFT and blockchain on their site, but you can read about that on the DeHorizon site.
