MMO Year in Review: EverQuest Never (March 2016)

This year, we’re taking a time-machine back through our MMO coverage, month by month, to hit the highlights and frame our journey before we head into 2017.

March was pretty much the worst month of the entire year, and March 11th was a particularly bad day: It was the day that EverQuest Next was canceled, WildStar was slammed with layoffs, Colin Johanson announced he was leaving the Guild Wars 2 team, and Zahrym left the WoW team. Our Week in Review summary that week is just called “Sadface.” In retrospect, I can see why MMORPG players were shaken to the core. I’m so sorry if March 11th was your birthday.

The rest of March wasn’t much better; Revival was more or less canceled, there was that whole Ghillie suit thing, and Guild Wars 2 ended development of legendary weapons.

March was also the month a dev team coined “shitstorm matrix,” so there was that.

Read on for the curated list of our favorite posts from the month of doom.
