Australia-based middleware developer BigWorld Technology has announced that Sierra Online has licensed its BigWorld Technology Suite for the development of an upcoming PC online game targeting a mass-market audience.

The BigWorld Technology Suite provides the tools and technology to develop cutting-edge, next-generation online games. The suite is comprised of the BigWorld Server Software, Content Creation Pipeline, 3D Client Engine Package, and Live Management Tools & Instrumentation. BigWorld says it aims to provide a complete MMOG solution designed for companies producing next-generation MMOGs or virtual worlds.

BigWorld has specialized in licensing its 3D MMO technology to Asian markets, but has also announced more than one deal with Western firms, including John Romero's Slipgate Ironworks for an unannounced MMO in progress, and Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment for its upcoming MMORPG, Stargate Worlds.

Said Sierra Online studio manager Judith Hoffman, “Sierra Online continually evaluates its development technology and is always looking for solutions that will help us develop world-class, innovative titles. BigWorld’s powerful online middleware Technology Suite will provide the flexibility to develop an upcoming online game that will take the gameplay experience to the next-level of functionality and sophistication.”
