Cancelled Online Games of 2013 - Page 3

Universal-Monsters

It was a bad year if you were a Universal Monster in a Bigpoint game. Bigpoint pulled the plug on its Universal Monsters Online MOBA at the same that they put an end to The Mummy Online. And like The Mummy Online, I wouldn’t blame you if you had never heard of it. Both games were poorly promoted and died somewhat quick deaths.

Magic-the-Gatheing-Tactics

SOE announced a partnership with Wizards of the Coast back in 2009 to create Magic: The Gathering - Tactics, which we got our first look at in 2010. Based on the Magic: The Gathering universe, Tactics is a 3D turn-based strategy game featuring powerful spell cards, single player campaigns, and competitive multiplayer PvP. And while it’s not technically dead yet, SOE has already putt Magic: The Gathering - Tactics on life support and it will officially meet its demise on March 28th, 2014.

Twisted Tribe’s multiplayer game Nadirim, first developed by Digital Reality, also met its demise this year. Nadirim, an Arabian-themed fantasy multiplayer game featuring quests, duels, and evil djinn, launched in November 2011. Twisted Tribes made the decision to shut the game down on June 30th, 2013 after 2 years of service.


this list made me sad I recalled my Orc character in WAR I played a year ago and it is really sad to lose this game, I was 100 percent sure that if they tried F2P in the time when the old games like LOTRO made it, it would worked for them :( never understood why they didnt come f2p

Games Workshop chose not to let them renew the license.

And that's why I enjoy non-licensed MMORPG titles much more. There's no arbitrary time limit on the license. Granted, that doesn't always keep the game alive, but it does at least eliminate that one big hurdle that could be the one thing keeping it off this list.

:( true, it was a long waiting for Stargate Worlds :(

Oh, don't get me started on that one. =p
