• MAIET's plan for GunZ 2

    From http://maiet.tistory.com/6518

    Q. Are you really using RealSpace 3.0 for GunZ 2? Can it be possible to use same engine with MMORPG game?
    A. Yes, that is right. GunZ 2 and RaiderZ will use the same graphics core. But that does not mean that they will share the game core or the network core. Also please remember that we'll use different middle wares for each titles. You can check on the following link for more information about it.

    Q. Will a CBT be possible in this year?
    A. It will not be possible for this year.

    Q. I want to be a test for GunZ 2. Please send me an email when it's available.
    A. Unfortunately we cannot send an email that related to the testing. The testers for GunZ 2 Korea edition will be only available through the Korean official website.

    Q. Why is there already a promotional video of RaiderZ, and not one of GunZ 2 yet?
    A. Please remember that RaiderZ project started in 2006. As we already announced, we started to make GunZ 2 in 2007. Definitely GunZ 2 will be our 4th game title. It's pretty reasonable that we would release our 3rd game title "RaiderZ" first.

    Q. Is GunZ 2 delaying because of RaiderZ?
    A. No. Please note that there are completely separated teams for each projects. Just engine team is ahre by only both projects.

    Q. Why aren't you releasing the screenshots of GunZ 2? Please show us something what you made so far!
    A. We are not ready to show the screenshots of GunZ 2 because we're still focused on the implementation of game core. Though the graphics team of GunZ 2 is really working hard, their work is not yet for the release version. Please be patient, we really want to share screenshots when it's ready.

    Q. Will the promotional video of GunZ 2 release at Gstar?
    A. Unfortunately we cannot give any guarantee. We might need to discuss about the issue with our local publisher upon the production progress.

    Q. I heard that you will remove kStyle.
    A. No, we have no plan on removing kStyle. We're still testing many ways to integrate them with the new game play.

    Q. Once GunZ 2 comes out, what will happen to GunZ 1?
    A. We've already answered this question many times. GunZ 1 will still exist and we're still improving it. I personally hope that we can release our new plan about GunZ 1 during this year.

    Q. Will there be international servers owned by MAIET for GunZ 2 and RaiderZ?
    A. Unfortunately we've experienced and found so many problems to provide an international service by ourselves. So maybe NO. - MAIET is still small game studio. Over 90% of our employee are the game developers, and there are just few staffs for QA and business support. That's why I was one of administrators for GunZ international edition. I don't think that we'll be able to hire enough staffs to provide an international edition for two games. :$

    Q. I really want to know more information about GunZ 2!!!
    A. We also wish to announce as much as we can as soon as possible. But we may not officially release any information about GunZ 2 till November. Thank you very much.

      I hope American and Brazilian businesses pick Gunz 2 up as quickly as it happened to Gunz 1. Otherwise we're gonna have to wait for a while.

      Actually, the American version of Gunz was rather late, it took several years.
      The international version, which was ran by the devs Maiet, started 5 years ago. It's been around, I think, 2-3 years since ijji Gunz started.

      Huh. No iGunZ2 then, eh? Maybe someone could volunteer for the position then? Really, administrating a GunZ server isn't very difficult as both PieceofPi and myself know. If Maiet is having trouble getting admins for an international version, I'd just consider them not especially resourceful.

      It's on realspace 3 right? So are we still going to be looking at another quake-derived engine like realspace 2 was?

      In other news, gzmap updated. Somebody get in touch with legion and give that man a high five.

      They just took the old FAQ and said it in a different way.

      They answered, literally, nothing.

      Just sayin'...

      This is why Maiet will never become a successful international company. They only care about korea. the rest of the world can go fck themselves as far as they're concerned. They've been working on this game for 3 years and the most they've given are a few evasive comments and non-answers. There's a loyal international Gunz following that deserves far better.

      I hate to sound like an ass here but this interview is terrible. It's really not the questions, it's the responses. "Unfortunately," "No," "We can't answer that," "You'll just have to wait."

      Seriously, are they gonna tell us ANYTHING about this game other than the fact it has a new engine and has K-style? If they couldn't tell us anything until November why bother with this interview to duck and dodge questions? Building up hype for a game involves actually giving the fans real information for them to cling to.

      So, no screenshots, no video, no info on a release date, no little teasers of any sort. And this is for a game that's apparently been in development for 3 years. MAIET really knows how to set-up games to become Vaporware. They really should've just said nothing at all and delayed any interviews until November.
