The ex-Blizzard fellows collectively responsible for the company's crowning glories Diablo, Diablo II, WarCraft and StarCraft have unveiled their new development team, Flagship Studios. The company was founded by former executives of Blizzard North David Brevik, Max Schaefer, Erich Schaefer, Bill Roper and Kenneth Williams, and they are joined by various other ex-Blizzard employees responsible for some of the most popular PC titles ever made.
GameSpot managed to grab Bill Roper recently for a Q&A session about Flagship, quizzing him on what the fledgling studio's future plans might be and the reasoning behind the founding of the new company. Roper is understandably coy when revealing details about the project currently in development, but he does throw his audience a teaser when he announces what the project isn't: "It isnít a classic fantasy story, it isnít set in some place youíve never heard of, and it isnít a sports title." For more fun and games with Monsieur Roper, have a read of GameSpot's transcript.
