Former Ultima Online Developers Form New MMO Studio

Gordon Walton and Todd Coleman have lifted the veil in their newly formed Austin-based game development studio, ArtCraft Entertainment, and the plans to develop a new massively multiplayer online game.

Both of the founders boast an impressive level of experience and management roles within the MMO industry including time with Wolfpack Studios, Origin Systems, KingsIsle Entertainment, SOE and BioWare – teams behind the likes of Shadowbane, Ultima Online, Wizard101, Star Wars Galaxies and Star Wars: The Old Republic.

[quote cite=”Todd Coleman”]”In the last decade, Gordon and I have had the opportunity to work with almost every game artist, designer and engineer in Austin. We drew on those contacts to recruit a team of all-stars – and we’re building something completely different, completely unique.” [/quote]

ArtCraft Entertainment was first founded in 2013 and has already raised over $2.3 million in funding, although further details on the MMO have yet to be revealed. Watch this space!
