DaVinci Online, originally known as Project Renaissance (link), has been signed up by ChangYou for the North America and Western Europe market. According to foreign reports, there will be 4 different languages upon release, including English, French and Spanish. DaVinci Online is the maiden project for Korean developer Bridea (fused from Bright Idea), with core staff coming from Webzen who worked on the doomed Huxley. More information about this Unreal 3 powered game can be found here (link).
It seems the mega China MMO powerhouses located in North America are now shifting more towards publishing external games rather than focus on their own titles. Perfect World Entertainment led the way with the signings of Rusty Hearts and RaiderZ, and now it is ChangYou’s turn. DaVinci Online is reportedly ready for Closed Beta testing before the year ends, and it seems the game was developed with the English market in mind according to the screenshots below.Other than the traditional PvP modes, there will be PvE maps as well.
