Former Epic Games and Blizzard employees founded the studio Lightforge Games.

Lightforge Games was founded by a number of highly experienced developers, including Matt Schembari, Dan Hetzka, Nathan Fairbanks, Glenn Rane, and Marc Hutcheson. There are now several people who have helped develop games such as Diablo, The Elder Scrolls Online, Fortnite, Hearthstone, Overwatch, World of Warcraft and Star Wars: The Old Republic.

The studio aims to “change the way RPGs are played” and are currently working on a “cross-platform, social game where players have the power to create worlds and tell stories with unprecedented freedom”.

The studio recently raised $ 5 million with investments from 1UP Ventures, Galaxy Interactive, Dreamhaven and NetEase games, among others.
