Turbine talks console MMO

Recently, we had the opportunity to talk to Adam Mersky, Director of Communcations at Turbine, about an unannounced MMO title for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 currently in development at Turbine. Details are extremely limited at this time, but Mersky was encouraging when talking about the development of the ongoing project.

We’re looking at creating, hopefully, the first MMO that really works. Right now we’re looking at if for the 360 and the PS3…We’re not going to rush to be first so-to-speak, but clearly we’re leading the way. We’ll ship something when it’s ready, and when it’s something that’s going to work on the platform. Clearly there are a lot of hurdles. We’ve been working for awhile, plowing through the majority of them, and we’ve got a lot of work still to do.
Turbine raised 40 million dollars this spring to put into both new and old projects, so there is an excellent chance that a good deal of this money has been pumped into the console-specific MMO. Mersky was especially clear in our conversation that Turbine is dedicated to bringing an MMO to the living room that has the power to exceed expectations on the platform. Turbine has already demonstrated their commitment to continually bringing new content to their MMOs with games like Dungeons and Dragons Online and Lord of the Rings Online, so it will definitely be interesting to see what the developer has in store for console owners.
