Jagex opens US studio, announces Carnage Racing for Facebook

Jagex has opened a new studio in California with staff consisting of Rockstar’s Midnight Club developers.

The studio will focus on social games, with the first title, Carnage Racing, releasing on Facebook in November.

The multiplayer racing game is being developed with Unity, and will contain a variety of vehicles, power-up, weapons, and 3D racetracks.

“Carnage Racing is set to bring the development quality of triple-A gaming to Facebook by presenting racing fans with a truly compelling and unbeatable multiplayer racing experience," said Rob Ollett, Jagex’s VP of third-party publishing. “With Carnage Racing, we are determined to offer a console-like experience which capitalizes on Facebook’s vast network to match player’s race after race, in what promises to be the best 3D racer on Facebook."

The game promises to blend arcade style gameplay mechanics with triple-A graphics for competitive fun with friends.
