The Cyberathlete Professional League (CPL) announced today that it has licensed the Severity game title to Escalation Studios. The new Dallas-based studio is headed by Tom Mustaine, a former managing partner of Ritual Entertainment and a member of the CPL Advisory Board.
Escalation Studios, is already in discussions with a publisher and expects to announce more details on the Severity title later this summer.
Severity is a multiplayer first person shooter (FPS) focusing on team-versus-team and one-versus-one play modes. Additionally, the game offers unprecedented support for gamers worldwide playing in online and live competitions both casually and professionally.
The CPL will remain involved in general design, to insure that the game is one of the first to have the league’s new official designation of “E-Sports Ready.” The league plans to hold tournaments for the title once the playable demo is released.
