Seoul-based developer and publisher NeoWiz (FIFA Online, NBA Street
) signed a licensing deal with middleware company Trinigy to license Vision Engine 7 for a new project.
With the agreement, Neowiz intends to use Vision 7 for the development of an unnamed "multi-million, multi-user online shooting game." The studio is currently working with Electronic Arts, which invested $105 million in Neowiz last year, on a Battlefield
game specifically targeting the Korean market.
Released in June 2008, Vision Engine 7 has been licensed by a variety of developers, such as Xibalba Studios for casual PC title Icebreakers
, as well as Settlers
developer Blue Byte for unannounced forthcoming titles.
"We are delighted to continue our successful business relationship with Neowiz," says Trinigy's International Sales director Richard Radmacher.
He continues, "They have been working with the Vision Engine since 2004, and we are sure that they will once again create an amazing game. We are truly honoured to be able to support their ambitious plans with our latest technology."
