Developer ‘U4iA’ (euphoria, geddit?) has Activision’s blockbuster franchise in its sights.
They aim to launch the first free to play, ‘AAA’, browser based, first person shooter and the development team is headed by the fabulously-named Dusty Welch, who knows a thing or two about shooters.
“I created Call Of Duty to dethrone the established leaders back in the early 2000s, and you bet my goal at U4iA is to repeat that success again,” said Dusty.
U4iA is aiming to exceed the 30 million strong user-base of RPG League of Legends. The FPS title is squarely targeted at ‘hardcore’ gamers and a tentative launch of mid 2012 has been suggested.
