Maynard, MA - December 18, 2007 - 38 Studios, a pioneering entertainment company dedicated to delivering a broad spectrum of immersive products, today announced that Michael Kosenski has been appointed Vice President of Product Development.

Kosenski comes to 38 Studios from Electronic Arts Los Angeles, where he held the position of Senior Development Director across multiple award-winning franchises.

"Joining the team of Close, Schilling, Salvatore, and McFarlane is a very exciting, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," said Kosenski. "Being chosen to lead the development of such a talented team on such an amazing IP is an honor. I look forward to helping 38 Studios continue to excel in both product development and in building an incredible team culture. I'm proud and excited to be a part of a company with such a great future."

RA Salvatore, huh? i loved his books. i wonder how this game will turn out.

They're working on an as-yet unnamed MMOG. My nemesis, Curt Schilling, is heading it up, and he's got Todd McFarlane and RA Salvatore on board. See here for an interview from earlier this year.
