What happens when a virtual economy tangles with the real deal?
It’s a mystery, to be sure. But we’ll have a good idea once Mindark, the developer behind the MMO Entropia Universe, goes public sometime in the near future – a plan it announced today.
Mindark is definitely forward-thinking, considering it nabbed a license to Crytek’s CryEngine2 – the same tech that powers Crysis – back in July this year.
Mindark CEO Jan Welter believes the IPO will provide the company a platform to expand, acquire new IP and invest in its dev teams. Hopefully Welter will stay true to his word, and the needs of shareholders won’t overwhelm that of players.
