Twisted Pixel says it’s working on console MMO for Turbine [UPDATE]

Saturday, 26th June 2010 22:06 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Update: We’ve been told by a representative close to the firm that it’s “not ready to be talked about” yet on either side.

Original: Twisted Pixel has announced on its website that it has “finished a contract” with Turbine, helping the LOTRO creators out on a console MMO.

Here’s the post from Twisted’s website:

It’s still hush hush, but we just finished a contract with Turbine to help them build an awesome new MMO intended for consoles.

If you want more than that, you’ll have to take it up with Turbine, because we can’t spill the beans on their top-secret game.

It was a fun project, and we’re proud of our work. We can’t wait to play it ourselves when it’s released.

Yes Twisted Pixel, we will take this up with Turbine. As a matter of fact, we’ve already sent the mail.

Still, as hush-hush as this seems, we doubt we’ll get much.

Turbine has said before that it was working on an MMO for PS3 and Xbox 360, and during GDC Austin last year, explained how such a game could “revolutionize consoles”.

Last year, a survey popped up asking consumers how much they would be willing to pay for LOTRO should it be released on Xbox 360.

Hopefully, someone at Turbine will get back with us soon.

Thanks, Massively.

    As has been stated many a time, due to Microsoft’s business model it makes it almost impossible for mmo’s to exist on the xbox360. It would also require some form of memory for game updates so they would have to include a storage device with the game. No idea about the PS3 business model.

    I’m sure that the next gen consoles in roughly 5 years time will have mmo titles at some point to cater for the lack of stuff now. Would be stupid to ignore a market as large as this.

    Right, because FFXI and Phantasy Star online both came packaged with a storage device… They just come with big warnings on the box stating that you MUST have hard drive to be able to play the games, just like the Football Manager games that came out on the 360 too.

    Considering the LOTRO MMO, has(Will be free this Fall) gone free to play in the USA, I would love to see that come out on the 360. I beta tested LOTRO for quite some time, but when it came time to pay, I passed…Not big on $15.00 a month for MMO’s but since LOTRO has gone free…I believe it is the fall, around October, I will Go out on a Limb and say that TP has been working on the Port of the Game to 360, and Money will be made on DLC and Micro-Transactions….So Get yer Salt and Pepper ready, and Throw that Hat on the Barbie! ROFL
