Last week, Trion announced that it was closing down its San Diego studio which was the home to the Trion Defiance team until now. The Defiance development and community teams will join the rest of the Trion team at their Redwood City studio where further development of the game will continue.
On the same day, Scott Hartsman also announced his return to Trion Worlds as CEO. Hartsman was a major player throughout much of of the production and development of Trion’s RIFT MMORPG. With any luck, this move will mean good things for both Defiance and Trion.
