Diablo Creator Joins Marvel MMO Team

Posted by Chris On July - 21 - 2009


Gazillion, the studio that picked up the rights to a Marvel MMO, has made an announcement that not only legitimizes the project, but also adds a serious heavy hitter to the development team.

Gazillion Entertainment announced today that former President of Blizzard North, David Brevik, has joined as Studio Director for Gargantuan studios, the development team in charge of the Marvel Universe MMO.  Brevik is the man responsible for the creation of the Diablo series, one of the most financially and critically successful PC franchises of all time.  A huge talent like this really gives the project legitimacy, and should create some much-needed buzz around the underpublicized project.

“I’m a huge fan of comic books, Super Heroes, and MMORPGs, so the chance to lead the creative efforts for the Marvel Universe MMO is an amazing opportunity. Gazillion’s mission to bring MMOs to the mainstream while maintaining the depth in gameplay that enthusiast gamers demand is something that deeply resonates with me…Marvel is a perfect fit for this mission, and I couldn’t imagine a better venue to announce our efforts than Comic-Con.”

At this week’s San Diego Comic-Con, Brevik will be participating in a Q&A entitled “The State of MMOs: A Discussion with the Developer,” and discussing the game.  We’ll keep you updated with any news or info that comes out of that discussion.
