World of Darkness Cancelled, CCP Focusing on EVE Franchise

By   /   Apr 14, 2014

CCP, creators of the MMORTS EVE Online franchise, has pulled the plug on the much awaited Fantasy-MMO World of Darkness. Development on the game began as far back as 2007, a year after they merged with RPG maker and former book publisher White Wolf.

Based on the fictional universes created by Mark Rein-Hagen, World of Darkness was supposed to be a sand-box MMO that merged several of White Wolf’s diverse universes which were based on a Live Action RPG of the same name. A game of this scale required time and effort, thus it was announced to take 4-5 years of development time.

By the end of 2013, internal restructuring of the company affected World of Darkness’ team in the worst way and left them with just 15 members or less. CCP insisted that the lay offs would not effect the development and that the game’s progress is going fine. At the same time CCP increased their focus on EVE and it’s spin-off title Dust 514.

CCP Boss Hilmar Veigar Petursson issued an apology to fans and ex-staff members today saying that the project was too much for them to see through to completion. With World of Darkness out of the way, CCP will now focus more on their EVE Franchise.

“Although this was a tough decision that affects our friends and family, uniting the company behind the Eve universe will put us in a stronger position moving forward, and we are more committed than ever to solidify Eve as the biggest gaming universe in the world.”
