A handful of developers from DICE, two of which worked on Battlefield 3 are leaving the company for Ngmoco Sweden. The Stockholm based developer loses Wille Wintertidh, Matt Hildingsson and Torbjorn Laedre. What will they be working on at Ngmoco Sweden? Alot of the development focus at the company is geared towards content for the social gaming platform Mobage.
Mobage is a virtual world/gaming platform where subscribers can exchange messages, chat, share media, and play free games within the framework of the platform. “Mobage-town” is a virtual world where players can customize clothing, living areas, and other options to make their avatars unique with “Moba Gold”. Earning revenue by clicking on ads or signing up for services with advertisers on the platform.
It’ll be a far cry from the world of Battlefield 3 or Mirrors Edge 2 (yeah I said it), for these three.
