Lego is to build a MMO with American developer Netdevil,the company behind Auto Assault, which was published by NCsoft in 2006.
The MMO will be targeted towards youngsters as well as LEGO fans. “As children around the world continue to spend more time online we are developing new and engaging ways for them to interact with our brand,” said LEGO’s Lisbeth Valther Pallesen. “The LEGO brand represents construction,creativity and problem solving — values that compliment the MMOG market.”
“Playing with LEGO bricks and developing online worlds are both creative activities. To bring them together is deeply professionally satisfying and we look forward to working with the LEGO team,” said NetDevil president Scott Brown.
Details about the actual game and publishing agreements have yet to be announced.
