Simutronics has announced that their next-generation MMO game engine, aptly named the HeroEngine, has been licensed by the game development studio Pitch Black Games for an upcoming sci-fi MMO. For those of you who don’t know, these are the same guys and gals who helped with titles such as Dungeons & Dragons Online and Guild Wars. Additionally, the HeroEngine has been used in a number of titles, including BioWare’s upcoming Star Wars: The Old Republic.

According to Warren Weems, President of Pitch Black Games…
“We don’t want to spend years creating new technology. We have a phenomenal game design and we want to concentrate our efforts on creating a new, unique and unforgettable experience for players. The HeroEngine enabled us to do this,”

I’m definitely stoked for anything sci-fi MMO-related. We have yet to get another game quite like FunCom’s Anarchy Online and it would be cool if that’s sort of what Pitch Black’s new game will be like.

Any further details on the project have yet to be disclosed but we’ll be sure to keep you posted on anything new regarding the new-generation MMO. For more info be sure to visit the Official HeroEngine Website.
