Former Guerrilla Members Form New Studio: Vanguard
If you formed one talented studio, chances are, you can form another.
Perhaps this is the thought process behind the following: two of the original founders of Guerrilla Games have announced they'll be forming their own design studio, Vanguard Entertainment Group. Martin de Ronde left Guerrilla back in 2006, and he'll be the chief commercial officer, while Michiel Mol, who left in 2005, will act as the prime strategy adviser. Vanguard will combine its online game production company, Karami, with W! Games, the developer of the well-received downloadable title, Greed Corp. We don't know exactly what Vanguard will be working on, but one is definitely an "original IP that will adapt the fundamental mechanics of the online PC game model to consoles and other premium gaming platforms." Basically, they'll be trying to bring many of the social networking elements of PC gaming into the console realm. "We feel both these market segments will be rapidly converging over the coming years, rather than competing with each other," said de Ronde.
Well, we'll have to wait and see about that project. In the meantime, we'll remain excited for Killzone 3.
