Scott Martins, previously head of Sony Online Entertainment's Denver studio, has established a new company called Dire Wolf Digital, along with a number of former colleagues.
Dire Wolf is to focus on what it calls "Anytime, Anyplace" gaming, and has started work on a trading card game that will sit alongside an unnamed upcoming MMO title.
Additionally the team is also in pre-production on "additional social and strategy game projects" for next year.
"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 in a statement. "“We want to continue to make fun games that fans of all ages can enjoy and play for years to come."
Dire Wolf Digital is based in Denver, and its staffing base can lay claim to experience on The Lord of the Rings Online TCG, the Stargate TCG, the Legends of Norrath TCG, the Star Wars Galaxies TCG, and the Free Realms TCG.
