THQ teams with Rise of Nations creator for new project

  • Agoura Hills (CA) - THQ announced today that it has inked a deal with Big Huge Games, most noted for its Rise of Nations series, to work on a next-gen RPG for the Xbox 360, PC, and Playstation 3.

    The unnamed game is currently slated for a street date in 2009.  Heading the development team is Ken Rolston, who, before joining Big Huge Games, helped design the two latest Elder Scrolls titles as well as pen-and-paper RPG games that date back a quarter of a century.

    "In such splendid company, I’m privileged to embark on a bold pilgrimage to create a refreshingly original RPG experience. I know eager game fans will share our excitement as we reveal further details in the coming months," said Rolston in a press release.

    Details are obviously scarce right now, but the new game is planned to take up virtually all of Big Huge Game's resources for the next two years.
