Reloaded Studios, a recently-formed Korean game development company, have announced that they have entered into a licensing agreement with German Crysis developers Crytek for use of the award winning CryEngine 2 middleware to develop their new action-strategy MMORPG. Reloaded CEO Ki-Yong Cho says the studio is aiming to make its MMORPG stand out in a very competitive market, and decided to rely on CryEngine 2's support for an ambitious vision of "massive" landscapes and dynamic content. Reloaded also plans to emphasize the art style in the upcoming title, which Cho says was also a factor in choosing the middleware. “Our technology team carefully reviewed and analyzed both the features and limitations of all of the major game engines and middleware solutions which are currently available to license, before making our choice,” explains Ki-Yong Cho, CEO of Reloaded Studios. “No other engine came close to offering the dynamic features, developer friendly tools, or provided anything near the visual quality of the CryEngine 2." Korea based MMORPG developer XL Games also recently announced it had selected CryEngine 2. XL was founded by Jake Song, creator of NCSoft's Lineage, who had been inspired to choose the middleware after seeing it used in AION, another NCSoft title. “We are really looking forward to working together with Reloaded Studios on this exciting new game development.” said Faruk Yerli, managing director of Crytek.
