British developer Splash Damage, creators of the Enemy Territory
franchise for id Software, have announced plans to double the size of the company’s London based studio as preparations begin on a new, previously unannounced, multiplatform title.
The first Enemy Territory
game was created as a PC exclusive expansion pack for Return to Castle Wolfenstein
but was eventually released as a free download, to considerable acclaim from players. Quake Wars: Enemy Territory
was released last year as a standalone game for the PC with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions announced but still not released.
No further details on the studio’s next project, or whether it will also be a co-production with id Software, have been announced. However the company has released a press statement indicating that it is “staffing up”, with vacancies in core roles such as art, programming and design.
Owner Paul Wedgwood is also planning to give a one hour talk entitled “From Amateur to Triple-A in Five Years” at this year's Game Developers Conference – detailing the business lessons learned by the studio since its formation.
