NetEase Jackalope Games

NetEase Games is finally making the a move into the U.S. It might seem a little weird reading that, as it’s not like we’re not already playing many of their games and, if you don’t think about it, it may just seem like they’re already here. But, until now, they’ve never owned a studio in the U.S.

Today the company announced the launch of Jackalope Games in Austin, Texas. The new studio will be creating PC and console games and is led by Jack Emmert. Emmert is known for his work on Neverwinter, Star Trek Online, DC Universe Online, and City of Heroes. That means he’s fairly well-versed in the creation of MMOs.

The new studio will operate independently. However, the first project is being completely funded by NetEase. Of course, what that project is has yet to be specified, so we’ll just have to wait and see what they have in store for us.
