Though no details of the game are available, Trion's technology was said to be comprised of "advanced server architecture, designed to enable massive scalability, dynamic content evolution and cross platform development."
Petroglyph, best known for its RTS titles Star Wars: Empire at War and Universe at War: Earth Assault, was founded in 2003 by former employees of the now-defunct Command & Conquer developer Westwood Studios.
"Petroglyph is extremely excited to be working with a visionary publisher like Trion World Network", said Petroglyph president Michael Legg. "Combining Trion's platform and industry expertise with our GLYPH game technology and our development pedigree will allow us to unleash a groundbreaking MMORTS gaming experience to the world."
Yay, finally an MMORTS. I've been dreaming about this ever since I heard about the Dune MMORTS (which was canceled grrr).
Just your luck: Petroglyph's founding members helped develop Dune 2!
