Former executives from Blizzard, Sony Online, and Relic Entertainment have pooled together to form Molten Games, a San Diego-based developer/publisher with a focus on AAA online games.

“Molten Games has assembled a wildly talented and experienced team, and we absolutely believe they will create and run an amazing new game experience,” NCSoft CEO Taek Jin Kim said in a press statement. “They’re setting the bar high for themselves, with a strong desire to shake up the online gaming space by creating something new and unique in our industry.”

The studio is currently working on a AAA online PC game being funded by a multi-million dollar investment from NCSoft (Guild Wars, Lineage).

“We created Molten Games in order to truly have control over our game development and IP, and we’re going to create something epic,” added Molten Games CEO and co-founder of Jungwon Hahn. “Our team understands not only the creation of online games, but the ongoing management of them, better than anyone else in the industry. As we continue to build our team and work on our initial product, gameplay and player experience is going to come first with every decision.”
