If you thought the closure of Flagship Studios and loss of the Mythos IP back in 2008 meant that the game would never grace our computer screens again, you'd be mistaken. As noted in the press release below, T3 Entertainment subsidiary Redbana fully intends to release the massively multiplayer action RPG in the not-too-distant future, and they've even launched a brand new teaser website to prove it:
Mythos is Reborn Mythos had some serious potential at one time, but its rocky history and change of ownership pretty much spoils any interest I had for it. I'll be holding out for the multiplayer version of Torchlight, instead.
Redbana US Launches Updated Teaser Site Detailing Several New Additions to the Highly Anticipated Dungeon-Crawling MMO
SAN FRANCISCO - Dec. 1, 2009
Redbana US Corporation today announced plans to publish Mythos in North America. T3 Entertainment's North American development and publishing arm, Redbana will bring the long-awaited online action RPG to US audiences, expanding the company's offering of premier free-to-play online games. Fans are encouraged to check out new additions to the game at the official teaser site: www.mythos.com.
The newly updated Mythos website features a brand new teaser trailer with never before seen footage of new content. Visitors can also stay updated on Mythos' development with a calendar of upcoming announcements and an animated book that describes some of the newly added back-story. Fans of Mythos can still sign up for the official newsletter, with more information about the upcoming North American closed beta, explore concept art and new features, which will be added periodically leading up to the game's launch.
(We're privileged to be able to take the helm of this ambitious and highly-regarded project,) said Young Rok Park, CEO of Redbana. (We launched Redbana with Audition, and are now diversifying our offering with Mythos. Our vision is to deliver a diverse selection of high quality games to the North American market.)
In 2008, the Mythos beta was closed to the disappointment of the game's many fans. HanbitSoft acquired the intellectual property and parent company T3 Entertainment resumed development, with the game now in closed beta in South Korea. Redbana will oversee the launch and operations for the title in North America.
