Newly formed studio to use Crytek's latest game engine to build company's first title, an open-world role-playing game.
The engine that powered Crysis 2 will also run the new role-playing game from Warhorse Studios, a newly formed shop founded by former Mafia and Operation Flashpoint developers, the company announced today.
The Czech Republic-based studio is presently at work on an unannounced open-world role-playing game. Warhorse Studios has not announced platforms for the title or when it is expected to be released.
CryEngine 3 was used in Crytek's well-received Crysis 2, as well as October's rerelease of the original Crysis for Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network. The game engine will also be used in the upcoming games MechWarrior Online and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2.
Warhorse Studios was cofounded by Mafia design director Dan Vavra and Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising developer Martin Klima in July 2011. The pair has also enlisted some familiar faces to work at Warhorse in the form of Mafia animator Zbynek Travnivky and fellow Operation Flashpoint developer Viktor Bocan.
You can use whichever engine you want, it doesn't mean you'll get a good game. Here's to hoping they get the right formula in this one.
I've played gears 3, battlefield 3, crysis 2 and uncharted 3. I think Crysis 2 is still best looking thing I've seen. Its hard to choose but that is just so pwetty, so having that as a standard bodes well for the future. Its no guarantee but still...
last year was the year of the shooter, this year with xenoblade hitting US shores, Last story and Tales of graces f, and now this news, this could be the the year of the RPG!!!
