Paul Wedgewood, CEO and game director of Splash Damage, the developer behind the FMP (Frustrating Multiplayer) Brink, is promising big things to fans in 2012. In a letter on the Splash Damage website, he notes how much the industry has changed and is changing for more open online experiences. This has him pretty excited.
“We’ve enjoyed a fantastic first 10 years at Splash Damage and we’re looking forward to an even more exciting future. A huge part of this is due to you – our fans – so in this update, I’d like to give you a quick glimpse of what you can expect from us this year”. – Wedgewood
Some hints he drops to his readers:
- New talent and new hires
- New games for PC and consoles
- New games for “spaces completely new to us” (mobile or online?)
It will be interesting to see how Splash Damage does in those “new spaces”, and I am hoping for a rebound year after the disappointment in how Brink performed. After a slow start to 2012 for all of the gaming industry, I’m hoping that Splash Damage can make a…significant ripple…in the community.
