Intel acquires Offset Software, Project Offset

Project OffsetIn what will hopefully prove to be good news, Intel has acquired Offset Software, the developers behind the very impressive Project Offset.  One can only assume that this acquisition will mean better funding for the project, and ultimately, a better final product.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Project Offset, it is a first-person shooter/melee rpg set in a fantasy realm.  It will incorporate a hybrid fighting system described as being similar to modern fighting games, and will tell its story via the parallel tales of multiple protagonists.  Be sure to take a look at the video I’ve posted below.

The announcement was made by technical director Sam McGrath yesterday at Offset Software’s website:

"February 20th, 2008 – Intel Acquires Offset Software
Today we have some major news to announce.
Intel has acquired Offset Software. Yes, you read it correctly!
Project Offset is going strong and we are excited about things to come.
Stay tuned."

GamerNode will certainly be staying tuned, and will be reporting any new developments.
