Did you ever imagine Blizzard, SOE and NCSoft working together and creating the perfect MMO? Well your dream is almost real. Today a new company with veterans from Sony Online Entertainment and Blizzard was announced. San Diego based Molten Games announced that they are working on a free-to-play AAA online PC game with multimillion dollar budget from NCSoft.

"Molten Games has assembled a wildly talented and experienced team, and we absolutely believe they will create and run an amazing new game experience," said Taek Jin Kim, CEO at NCSOFT. "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."

"We created Molten Games in order to truly have control over our game development and IP, and we're going to create something epic," said Jungwon Hahn, CEO and co-founder of Molten Games. "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."

Powered by an amazing team of top creative talent with proven success publishing global games, Molten is poised to become one of the best developers in the industry. While details of the first game is scarce, it will be crafted using Unreal Engine, as seen in the job listing calling out for a Senior Unreal Engineer (Generalist) with experience in Unreal Engine 3 or 4. It will still be some years before the game surfaces, so stay tuned.
