World of Darkness MMO Tabled In Favor of Eve, Dust 514

After long years in development, CCP's World of Darkness MMO is now even farther from completion.

By Dylan Coffey on 10/19/2011
"Developing EVE expansions, DUST 514 and World of Darkness has stretched our resources too thin," reads CCP's press release this morning regarding its imminent layoff of 20% of its global staff. Most of the positions dropped will be from their Atlanta, Georgia studio in the United States. CCP insists that "EVE Online is in good health," and that, despite their debacle regarding overpriced vanity items and poorly thought out premium options, their subscriber rate is higher now than at this time last year.

They also worked to assure the gaming community that the World of Darkness MMO was not discontinued; rather, a smaller team will continue work on the title while most creative assets are focused on EVE and Dust 514. EVE Online has been going strong since 2003, and Dust 514 is a revolutionary MMOFPS primed for an exclusive PS3 release. Dust 514 will have unique, genre-altering interactions with the PC title, EVE Online, and is slated for a Spring 2012 release. Check out CCP's press release regarding the downsizing here.

I think we all know "smaller development team" means it'll never get done. I think a World of Darkness MMO pitting vampires vs. werewolves vs. human hunters would have been a great thing, assuming Twilight fans didn't ruin it.

Yeah I was excited for World of Darkness, but I guess it will have to wait. Can't blame them though, EVE is their money maker so they need to keep it going to have the funds.
