Rumor: Former Netease R&D Team Launches Gaming Start-Up

DoNews, 1/20/11

The former core development team behind Netease's (Nasdaq: NTES) self-developed MMORPG Westward Journey Online II, who resigned in April 2010, have reportedly formed a new company. The start-up will soon begin testing a self-developed turn-based 2D MMORPG, Feng Shen (not to be confused with KongZhong's (Nasdaq: KONG) game of the same name), based on the classic Chinese novel Fengshen Yanyi ("The Creation of the Gods").
