Jon Van Caneghem, creator of Might and Magic and founder of New World Computing has joined the Austin, Texas-based North American branch of NCsoft. There he will be united with Ultima creator Richard Gariott. Caneghem will assume the role of executive producer and is already working on a new online project. After founding New World Computing in 1983, he released his Apple II-based first Might and Magic title in 1987. Nine years later, he sold his company to 3DO.
