Everquest Designer Joins 38 Studios
A few weeks ago we profiled a call-center-software startup whose name, Exony, stands for ex-Sony, in reference to the herd of employees who left Sony to start the company. Boston’s video game industry is building up an ex-Sony club of its own—Curt Schilling’s Maynard, MA-based 38 Studios. The company announced today that it has hired Travis McGeathy, former lead designer of Sony Online Entertainment’s Everquest franchise, as systems design lead for its own massively multiplayer online game, code-named Copernicus. 38 Studios design director Jason Roberts and director of community development Steve Danuser also hail from Sony Online Entertainment.
