Online publisher True Games Interactive have announced a partnership with Petroglyph (Star Wars: Empire At War/Universe At War) to create a free to play, microtransaction-funded PC online game, which True Game will operate in the West.

According to the announcement, which does not give any specifics on the nature of the title, True Games will operate the Western version of the PC game, and collaborate with foreign publishers for global publishing opportunities.

The newly-founded True Games was created by two former K2 Network executives, bringing together expertise in micro-transaction operations and global publishing. True Games is based in Orange County, California and plans to launch its first title in 2008

The Las Vegas-based Petroglyph team is best known for its award winning Star Wars: Empire At War and Universe at War series, with members also playing a key role in creating the original Command and Conquer series, while at Westwood Studios.

“The Petroglyph founding team pioneered the Real-Time Strategy genre and they continue to innovate in this segment. It is an honor to partner with them for this game,” said Jeff Lujan, Chief Publishing Officer at True Games Interactive. “Petroglyph is known for high quality RTS games that appeal on a global level, and when combined with True Games’ expertise in the micro-transaction arena we have the recipe for an international blockbuster.”
