Dire Wolf Digital announced the formation of its new game development studio in Denver, Colorado, founded by Scott Martins, previously founder of Worlds Apart Productions, and studio head of Sony Online Entertainment Denver.

Mr. Martins is joined by other principals from Worlds Apart/SOE Denver, to form a team of game designers and developers with over a decade of experience, and with credits that include The Lord of the Rings Online Trading Card Game (TCG), the Stargate TCG, Legends of Norrath (the EverQuest-integrated TCG), the Star Wars Galaxies TCG, and the Free Realms TCG.

Dire Wolf will be emphasizing “Anytime, Anyplace” play with its technology, ultimately allowing customers to play from multiple types of clients (web/social, mobile, console), all connecting to a single back-end.

The company is currently producing a trading card game based on an upcoming massively-multiplayer online game, and is in pre-production on additional social and strategy game projects for 2011.

“With the proven track record and passion of our veteran team, Dire Wolf is poised to become a leader in the digital collectibles space,” said Martins. “We want to continue to make fun games that fans of all ages can enjoy and play for years to come.”

Dire Wolf Digital designs and develops online strategy and social games, specializing in digital collectibles and trading card and miniatures games. Dire Wolf is a one-stop design and development studio for companies looking to extend their brands and create synergies with collectible gaming in their communities.
