Codemasters Online Gaming has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz that it’s in talks to publish two massively multiplayer online games for home consoles.
The group has begun to enjoy success in the MMO market — in two-and-a-half years since inception the online division of the UK publisher has released four MMO’s and has NetDevil’s Jumpgate Evolution lined-up for release later this year.
And now it hopes to push into the MMO console market within the next twelve months, and go head-to-head with projects such as SoE’s The Agency, NCsoft’s PlayStation 3 project and Funcom’s Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures.
“The time is right for some good console MMO games. There’s two titles that we’re really interested in for taking to console right now and that’s something I’d like to see happen in the next year or so, but it’s got to be the right game,” said David Solari, vice president and general manager of Codemasters Online Gaming.
