You probably know that Hollywood actor Vin Diesel is no stranger to the world of gaming. If you didn’t know that, you’re going to find out now since his game development company Tigon Studios are working on a new and ambitious project – a MMO which will make Diesel’s dreams come true. Since it’s about fighting, about guts and glory and some long gone times – it’s Barca B.C.
Although it sounds more than a FC Barcelona fan club, the title will be a “massively multiplayer online game where you create an avatar that lives in the reality of Hannibal Barca, the Punic Wars and life 200 B.C.” according to Vin Diesel himself. He has to sort that out with the studio, since last time we checked, Barca B.C. was announced there as an action RTS… but the last thing I plan on doing is argue with a guy like Vin Diesel.
Especially since he knows what he’s talking: according to him, Barca B.C. has been in development for three years, but it’s still a bit far from being done. If it’s far enough, it might coincide with Vin Diesel’s upcoming movie Hannibal – and that would make complete sense, even if it’s a MMO we’re talking about and it can’t really be based on a movie. But we’ll let you know as soon as we have more details.
