Saga of Ryzom Shuts Down Servers

Posted Thu, Jan 31, 2008 by Aelryn

Doth the bell toll for Ryzom (for good this time)?

It looks like the future of The Saga of Ryzom is in danger yet again, with the servers primed to shut down this week. From the forums:

Dear players,

I'm very sorry to inform you that GameForge Germany has today told us that there is the possibility that the Ryzom servers will be shut down this week. Currently I'm being told that Arispotle will not be restarted in the near future.

This doesn't signal the end of Ryzom however; the liquidation procedure is still ongoing and there is still time for us to get new owners, so don't lose hope.

I'm afraid I might not be able to answer all the questions I'm sure you have, but I'll keep you updated when we know more.

If/when the forums go down, don't forget that we have the forums at - once again I'll post any and all updates there as well.

See the announcement and replies at the official forums and then join the ongoing discussion.
