Got this from Tornado's post over at the SIF

Today we have the honor to announce that Southend is developing a new multiplatform game for Deep Silver, scheduled to have its official announcement soon.
We are thrilled to announce a new exciting partnership with Deep Silver, the games label of Koch Media, a leading producer and distributor of digital entertainment products. Southend is responsible for the development of a new multiplatform game, based on one of Deep Silver'salready existing and popular brands. The game is scheduled to have its official announcement soon.

"It's exciting for us to partner with Deep Silver as we have a strong common vision for the games that we want to do. Deep Silver's strong lineup of fun brands made the choice easy" says Fredrik Erlandsson CEO of Southend.






oowah...whatever could it be?

Keen Games and Southend working on this? Or are they separate games perhaps...

It's called Sacred World... So I'm hoping it is what it sounds like it is! And not an mmo...

^ Indeed, really hoping for a good continuation to previous Sacreds, in one way or other. IMHO, there's plenty of MMOs already.
And since getting somewhat dissapointed with D3, this would be a blissful news indeed.

DB: Perhaps both a SP-orientated and MMO? Guess that'd really be a win-win situation. :P

Multi platform and MMO, can those go together? Personally I would prefer both offline SP and online MP modes like Sacred 2.

Wouldn't mind multiplatform, if it would really work. Had a blast with friend couple weeks ago when we marathoned Portal 2's co-op with pc and ps3.
Although something like Sacred would surely be harder to pull out.
Like lujate said, something along those lines is much appreciated.

Multi-platform can and has been done successfully. FFXI (Final Fantasy) is PC, Xbox and PS2/3 compatible and you all get to play together regardless of system. I played it for many years and we all got along just fine multi-platform. Only downside is to PC'ers in the fact that programming cant be more then what Xbox or PS3 can handle.
