History

Carbine's founders were 17 former members of Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft development team. Since then they have employed key personnel from games such as Diablo II, StarCraft, Metroid Prime, Fallout, EverQuest, City of Heroes, Half-Life 2 and many from other titles. The company was acquired by NCSOFT in 2007.

In March 2016, NCSOFT announced a reorganization and Polygon says more than 70 Carbine employees were laid off; this is about 40% of the studio. The studio will still focus on Wildstar development for its players, but the studio cancelled the planned Chinese version of the game.

Games

WildStar, a science fiction MMORPG was the first game released by Carbine Studios in June 2014.
