MMORPG.com is reporting that Serafina from World Fusion has sent out an email to the Atriarch community updating them on the progress of this MMORPG that has been in development for a number of years.
The roller coaster ride of waiting, of scarce updates, and of deadlines come and gone is probably disheartening. I wanted to email you personally and give you an update and status of what has been going on with Atriarch. I truly think of individuals waiting for Atriarch every single day. We are gamers too, and because of that can appreciate and respect you for it. So, here is the infamous good news/bad news Atriarch update:
Good News: Atriarch's Asian publisher re-emerged wanting to help us get Atriarch done faster. So, they are looking into getting their local talent to help us out with the gazillions of 3D models and artwork we need for the game and maybe some other aspects. We will be hearing back from them next week.
Bad News: This one is fairly obvious... although we are making progress, it is taking a very, very long time to get Atriarch done. In this respect, we are doing all we can given the tiny team and lack of funding. In the beginning, we said that even if our publishers explode or if things go bad for another reason (both of which happened), we would still follow through with Atriarch. And that we are!
Good News: Atriarch is and will continue to be.
You can read the rest of the letter here. Honestly I had completely forgotten about this game. They were a few years into development when I started in this career arena. Not much a peep since then. I hope that they can get it all together and launch soon.
