Grandia Online Announced
BigWorld has announced the new MMO, Grandia Online, the latest in the Grandia series which dates back to 1997.
The best selling original Grandia RPG was a Sega Saturn title. Grandia Online will be set in the ‘Age of Genesis’ before the original game took place. The game will be built on BigWorld Technology and is being developed by GameArts.
Yoshitada Iwata, Producer at GungHo Online Entertainment, commented that “The BigWorld Technology provides a robust, cost effective way for us to bring GameArts’ online visions to life. Both the technology and the support we receive from the BigWorld team are second to none, and I cannot recommend the BigWorld platform more highly to teams considering creating any kind of massively multiplayer online game.”
Grandia Online is due to be released this summer, with the open beta starting next month. Visit the official site for more info.
