Posted Tue, Oct 25, 2011 by Martuk

If you dabble in the stock market, you could possibly have a chance to own a piece of RIFT developer Trion Worlds. According to a report from GamesIndustry.biz, Trion Worlds is considering taking the privately owned company public.

"We've had a lot of bankers coming to us recently. We keep all of our options open at this point. We definitely have enough substance and enough skill to be a public company at the right time."

Trion Worlds is currently in a publishing deal with Petroglyph for the upcoming MMORTS End of Nations and is developing their second MMOG title in cooperation with the Syfy known as Defiance. RIFT, Trion’s first title, has been a profitable endeavor for the company according to CEO Lars Buttler.

"Rift is vastly profitable," he added. "It is profitable every single week and every single month."

While the market can be a challenge for any new company to break into, Trion Worlds has a promising lineup of games on the horizon along with their new publishing and development platform Red Door.
