Hi-Rez Studios CEO teases something coming for Tribes: Ascend

Unbreaking what we screwed up forever.

Tribes: Ascend has been in maintenance mode for a while now. It was never the moneymaker that SMITE proved to be, and while it hasn’t been shut down, players were told quite some time ago that it was on the back burner. But that may be changing. The studio’s CEO tweeted earlier this month that next month would bring “something new for something old,” and two further tweets tease at an upcoming reveal of information for Tribes fans.

Unfortunately for fans now eagerly sitting on the edges of their seats, a tease is all that’s provided. Several responses already suspect that the game is being shut down, but others are hopeful that the tweet earlier this month indicates good things just around the bend. Perhaps this is something we’ll find out over PAX Prime this weekend, or perhaps it will wait until early in September.

Takane Shijou Pretty much for me too.  I moved on to other games already so unfortunately, don’t have time to spend with Tribes.  Too bad, loved Tribes 2 and Tribes:Ascend was an ok adaptation.

Meh. Day late and a dollar short.

I used to be so into Tribes: Ascend… but after I heard they were halting development, well, I’ve moved on…

The annual COD release brings in over a billion dollars for Activision, rivaled only by WoW and Skylanders. I would say that FPS is still a dominant genre in the market.

One of the last lobby shooters I played. It was fun for being a lobby shooter but I just cant do lobby shooters anymore.

This is some pretty great news quite frankly.  Yes it’s probably too late to revive the game, but it’ll certainly be a positive direction for the remaining Tribes fans.

“especially for games like tribes where we can just pop in our copies of the original starsiege tribes and host servers for it instead,”

if that’s the case, where is the flourishing starsiege tribes community that has tournaments and leagues?  … let’s see… 1000 viewers on 12 streams right now for Quake Live and… uhm… 0 on 0 streams for any tribes game. Wow.  Such an impressive, passionate community keeping their favourite game alive through the ages :P

Way too late.
