Hellgate: London developer Flagship studios is already expanding, ahead of its first games' completion, with the opening of a new office in Seattle.
Flagship Seattle is working on MMO Myhtos, billed as a 'casual RPG', which is due in 2007.
The new team is to be headed by former lead designer of Fate at Wild Tangent Travis Baldree, who takes the role of project director.
“We were very impressed with the work of Travis from when we were first shown Wild Tangent's Fate at E3 2005", said Phil Shenk, creative director of Mythos and founding member of Flagship Studios. “Both he and the Flagship Seattle team have an exceptional pedigree in games development. Their skills and expertise make them real assets."
