A leading provider of 3D game development solutions, Emergent Game Technologies, announced the appointment of Scott M. Johnson to chief executive officer. Johnson has held the position since late last year and led the company to record results through the close of 2009.
Best known for its industry-leading 3D game engines, Gamebryo and Gamebryo LightSpeed, Emergent’s technologies have been used in Game of the Year titles Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Other games in Emergent’s sizable roster consist of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, Civilization Revolution, QQ Speed, Divinity II – Ego Dragonis and Bully.
“2010 looks to be a successful year for Emergent, as we complete a string of strategic hires and continue to support our ever growing roster of developers and newly signed licensees,” stated Johnson.
So, we’ll see if Emergent can continue their streak of being one of the most successful producers of 3d game development solutions this year. Judging by their past successes and Johnson’s track record, it almost seems like a sure thing.
