Brad McQuaid Planning New MMORPG Kickstarter

Posted Mon, Nov 04, 2013 by Martuk

If you’ve been around the MMOG circle for a while, you probably know who Brad “Aradune Mithra” McQuaid is. When McQuaid was with Verant Interactive, he was one of the key figures behind the development of EverQuest. McQuaid later co-founded Sigil Entertainment, which was responsible for the initial development of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. While the MMORPG was a promising one, it was mired in one of the more disappointing launches and controversial endings to a developer.

McQuaid later returned to SOE where he worked for a short time again on Vanguard before moving back to the EverQuest team. Now he’s out on his own again and looking to develop another new MMORPG with the help of Kickstarter. In a recent string of Twitter posts, McQuaid invited fans to ask their questions via email about the new game. The questions will be answered during the upcoming Kickstarter video and in future interviews.

While little is known about the project currently, McQuaid did confirm that it will be a high fantasy niche title.

The last thing McQuaid talked about is the usual goal of most of his games of not being a jack-of-all-trades and master of none.
