Speaking in this RPS interview, MMO developer NetDevil’s Hermann Peterscheck has talked in detail about moving on from the closure of the NCSoft-published Auto Assault.
“Obviously after the game didn’t do as well as expected and was eventually turned off, that’s a very difficult thing to get through,” he said. “As a team you end up spending years of your life working very long hours and when that doesn’t pay off the way you expect, then that’s certainly a painful thing. We ended up spending a lot of time thinking and evaluating why things didn’t go better and learned a lot of lessons from that which we are applying across the board.”
Auto Assault, the post-apocalyptic, car-based MMO, was turned off in March 2007. Check out the rest of the interview for lots more on NetDevil’s current baby, Jumpgate Evolution.

Codemasters MMO Jumpgate: Evolution will be released in the back end of this year, developer NetDevil has confirmed.
“We are planning on launching in the second half of 2008,” lead producer Hermann Peterscheck told VG247. “It’s really exciting to announce our partnership with Codemasters Online. They are already running some of the biggest MMO’s and have extensive experience – there’s only a handful of companies out there with their kind of breadth and depth of experience.”
The space-based game was recently picked up by Codemasters, and will be shown playable for the first time at Connect 2008 in Birmingham, UK, next month. NetDevil is an experienced MMO developer, having previously created the NCSoft-published Auto Assault. The move to Codemasters for Jumpgate appears to have been a good one for the outfit.
“There was also an instant chemistry between the way we are working on Jumpgate and the people at Codemasters Online,” said Peterscheck. “They are very responsive to our goals as a developer, which are in line with their goals as well – and in fact we have learned a lot from their experience – so it’s a great mutually beneficial relationship.”
