After the recent announcement regarding Sierra's strategic reorganization, many are aware that Dynamix has been closed and the development of TRIBES has been relocated to Sierra's Bellevue studio. Long time veteran of the gaming industry, Producer Rod Fung, will be heading up TRIBES development and moving the franchise forward. Rod has been with Sierra for over eleven years, most notably producing the award-winning SWAT titles for the company. Rod will be assembling a TRIBES development team consisting of experienced game developers, including talent from the original TRIBES 2 team.
The transition will be seamless and transparent for our TRIBES fans. Both TRIBES and TRIBES 2 are currently among the top five online action games and fans can expect the same level of dedication that they have received in the past. The Bellevue based development team has long-term visions and plans for the TRIBES games and is dedicated to continuing traditions of the franchise.
More immediately, work continues on an upcoming TRIBES 2 patch and a playable demo. The authentication servers are up, the IRC servers will continue as they are and the forums on TRIBES2.com are strong and thriving. Please stay tuned for what is to come as Sierra focuses on continuing and growing the TRIBES franchise and its community.
