About FireForge

FireForge is a well-funded fully independent developer and global publisher of online games founded by veterans drawn from some of the most prestigious studios and teams in the world. We have studios in both Singapore and Irvine, California.

Our leadership team comprises top talent with more than twenty years of industry experience each in making the games we love to play, such as Command & Conquer, Baldur’s Gate, Rift, Diablo II and World of Warcraft. Our CEO is Mr. Tim Campbell, the Lead Campaign Designer for Warcraft III. Our Chief Creative Officer is Mr. Kevin Beardslee, the Lead Animator for World of Warcraft. Joining us, you will have a chance to work closely with them and others of similar calibre.

We are sharply focused on playability above all else and our design philosophy is simple: We blend great core game experiences with an incredible amount of accessibility in order to reach truly massive audiences. These include both core gamers like ourselves and an emerging generation of new players in the Asian and Western markets.

We do not currently have a web presence as our global launch has not been announced yet.
