Flagship co-founder establishes Gravity Bear

Former Blizzard developer, Phil Shenk, sets up new studio with Hellgate's Kevin Klemmick

Phil Shenk, former Blizzard developer and co-founder of the now defunct Flagship Studios, has established a new studio, Gravity Bear.

Joining Shenk at Gravity Bear will be Kevin Klemmick, former senior software engineer on Hellgate London, who will serve as the company's technical director, according to Shacknews.

Earlier this year, Flagship Studios closed its doors, and its Seattle team later founded Runic Games.

This news comes after it was announced that all existing support for Hellgate:London will be withdrawn and servers will be shut down early next year.
