The new Carbine Studios has senior members from dev teams including World of Warcraft and Fallout. Can they outdo themselves?
World of Warcraft isn't a phenomenon. No, it's past that status. Now people call it an "anomaly." With over 9 million people playing WoW, Blizzard's developers have got to be feeling pretty good about creating a game whose success is considered freakish.
But while some developers have stayed with Blizzard to nourish the game through updates and expansions, others have understandably grown tired of working on WoW. So seventeen ex-Blizzard developers (and staff from other noteworthy backgrounds) moved onto the newly-announced Carbine Studios.
