Hey guys,

As some of you may already be aware from the press release on www.ccpgames.com, the World of Darkness MMO project has been cancelled, effective today, April 14, 2014.

While this is a sad moment for those affected, this puts us in a far stronger position to devote more time and resources to the EVE Universe and our projects therein.

You can read the full press release on our website here, and if you want to discuss it, please do so in this thread to keep discussion focused.

We'll also be answering questions here as and when we can, so please feel free to ask if you have any queries.

Thanks.

No. We are still fully committed to developing EVE, DUST and Valkyrie. Lots of things will be shown around the games in the EVE Universe come Fanfest.

Sucks to hear for those who lost their jobs, although it's a sad reality of the video game industry that this happens on a regular basis.

Do we know how many of the remaining Atlanta team will be working on Dust?

What was World Of Darkness?

Destiny won't kill Dust.

CCP already did that.

Can't go in to specifics, but the team remaining in Atlanta will be working on the games set in the EVE Universe.

Will there be a Kickstarter to restart the WOD online project at a future date? Or will the rights be "sold" to other parties?

No. CCP believes that Kickstarter / crowdfunding is best for starting projects and not finishing them - so it didn't feel like the right path to take.

So are doing to do a Microsoft and hold onto the ip indenfently or will buying it be an option. Exploring options counts as an answer. A LOT of people where looking forword to this iv got a facebook group im part of allready calling for blood (i dont think their joking either)

If this is not handled correct their could be significant backlash from the wider communty. This is a sad day for gaming

This will be looked at over the next few months. The WoD IP is very valuable and nothings been decided at the moment.

...and my admittedly far-future dreams of a halloween crossover event where we mercs could head over there and kick vampire ass with silver ion plasmas and hand-engraved Matari silver rounds.

This either bodes really well for Dust, or really badly.

Best of luck to all those developers/artists/programmers/etc who are out on the market. A lot of downsizing has been going on as of late in the games industry.

If you find an issue and I stumble upon your thread, I will do my darnedest to get the issue known.

Finally! Good move CCP.

It always seemed to me that EVE's Incarna disaster and Dust's missing features (persistent Warbarge?, Missing Vehicles, Game Types, and Assets, as well as general anemic performance) were directly and indirectly based on an over-reach to unify WoD environment design (always quite stunning and requiring nothing but the best in video performance) across all of CCP's properties.

Clearly the scale of the project was too large to deliver in a reasonable time. Further more, It was never going to work and support "reasonable computers" (non-bleeding edge PC's and console platforms), where the bulk of your customers are.


Godspeed, and good luck!.

CCP is (finally) steering off that lee shore.
