Trion World Network CEO Lars Buttler believes there's room for more than World of Warcraft
on the MMO playground. One would hope he'd say that as Trion is attempting to break into a market dominated by Blizzard's juggernaut. In an interview with GI.biz
, Buttler reiterates his assertions, which brought him to our attention originally, that Activision CEO Bobby Kotick was trying to scare competition off by saying even with a $1 billion investment Activision couldn't challenge WoW
(good thing for Kotick the company owns it
We're hoping that Trion starts making some game announcements soon, as it allegedly has $30 million in funding
, along with some former executives from top publishers. It'd just be nice to talk about Trion in some other context than Buttler saying WoW
isn't the only game in town.
