Prague-based Warhorse formed by former Mafia and ArmA developers

Members of 2K Czech and Bohemia Interactive have formed a new studio in Prague called Warhorse, where the new firm is working on an RPG.

According to the developer's official site, via Eurogamer, Mafia design head Daniel Vávra is the head of the new outfit, and other members include Dragon's Lair author Martin Klíma, and ArmA designer Viktor Bocan, plus Mafia animator Zbynek Trávnivký.

"There is a common thread running through our previous games: open worlds, strong storyline and, last but not least, realistic design," reads a statement on the firm's website. "We can proudly say that the games Mafia and Operation Flashpoint were the vanguard of this approach and millions of players worldwide clearly share our view.

"Even if our new project is different in many respects, it is a game that is not going to disappoint fans of open realistic worlds and quality stories."

No word on what it is yet, but there's a detail from Zizka's Battle of Grunwald painting on the site. We are unsure if it is a hit, or just there for aesthetic reasons.

The new studio is currently hiring programmers and artists.
