Ex-Frogster CEO launches new free-to-play company

Infernum to focus on MMOs for Europe, US and South America

Former Frogster CEO Andreas Weidenhaupt has launched a new free-to-play MMO publisher, focusing on Europe, the US and South America.

Infernum is currently working on a number of massively multiplayer projects and is also seeking titles to license and release in 2012.

"The market for high-quality MMO games that are free-to-play is growing dynamically and we intend to become a major player in the space," said Weidenhaupt.

"We’ve already begun assembling a top-notch team and are looking to fully utilise our resources by bringing some great games to the western world in 2012."

Weidenhaupt was one of a number of senior execs at Frogster who walked from the company following a takeover by Gameforge. Rolf and Ralf Kloppel, along with Benjamin Kaiser, left Frogster and established Neonga, a publisher also focused on the free-to-play market.
