GameIndustry - MMO Week: TV Production Akin to Game Development

More from GI's MMO Week.

FireSky's senior VP of strategic operations Joe Ybarra, whose company is developing a forthcoming MMO based on the sci-fi TV series Stargate Worlds, sees a similarity between television production and game development.

"I think the best way to look at it is that the IP for Stargate Worlds was originally a television series, and what's really interesting about working on a TV-based property - especially with Stargate - is the fact that it's an ongoing production and the mentality that they take towards creating the show is very similar to that which we take when building a game," Ybarra told GamesIndustry.biz.

There's more from the Stargate Worlds developers here.

Continuing the MMO Week series, GamesIndustry.biz talked to two of the company's figureheads - industry veterans Joe Ybarra and Rod Nakamoto - talk about their plans, the concept of mass-market, and the future of content distribution.
