HSC Labs has licensed Simutronics' HeroEngine development platform. Simutronics announced that the emerging development studio will use HeroEngine for its upcoming MMORPG. Simutronics launched HeroEngine in 2006 after five years of development, and its aim is to tailor its content pipeline specifically for MMOs. Past licensees include BioWare Austin, Virgin Games UK and Stray Bullet Games. Las Vegas-based HSC Labs says it plans to release its MMO, codenamed “the wϋrks” in 2011; the project is currently in development from a two-year concept. "HSC Labs is another example of why HeroEngine is rapidly becoming the number one choice for MMO development," said David Whatley, founder and CEO of Simutronics. "Developers are looking for ways to build their games better and faster and that is why we built HeroEngine."
