iOS Blade & Soul Comes True
NCsoft develops Blade & Soul Spin Off for the iPhone and iPad!
NCsoft has already started developing the spin off title and has recently started seeking experienced individuals for the games development team. NCsoft is currently hiring an Art Manager, a Client Programmer and a Server Programmer for this new project. Hiring a Server Programmer gives us reason to believe that this game will contain multiplayer aspects!
Edit: We would like to point out that Blade & Soul's iOS version will not be developed by the same team creating the PC/Console version. This spin off game should have little to no effect on the original games development speed.
Some of you might be familiar with Epic Games recently released Unreal 3 Engine game for the iOS titled "Infinity Blade". NCsoft prefers that the Art Manager they are looking to hire has experience working with the Unreal 3 Engine, which means we could expect Blade & Soul's iOS versions graphics to be on par with its PC counterpart.
According to ThisisGame.com, one of Epic Games staff members had this to say at E3 2010; "With this new iOS, Unreal Engine games like NCsoft’s upcoming Blade & Soul game can potentially be made on the iOS."
Here's what NCsoft had to say about all of this; "Currently this recruitment is just a test, we will be doing many experiments and we are not 100% certain that the game will be coming out on the iOS."
