SOE blueprints India studio


EverQuest developer Sony Online Entertainment is seeking a summer home in India. Speaking at a conference in Mumbai, India (via Next-Gen), SOE VP of international operations Dave Christensen said that they are seeking local partners to help find creative talent and "chip in" towards founding a studio.

"We need to have Indian content for our games and we are looking for local partners," said Christensen. SOE announced in August plans to develop an MMO based on Ramayan 3392 A.D., itself based upon an Indian epic. While an Indian-based studio sounds like a perfect fit for the MMO, no announcements were made regarding what projects the India study will be working on.

SOE has already claimed land, with flags in tow, in Taiwan, Austin, Texas and Seattle Washington.
