WildStar is definitely still launching on Steam

Nobody can get enough of the rock.

WildStar’s Chad Moore reassured Reddit and Twitter today that the game’s Steam launch is still on the way following last Friday’s news that 40% of the studio’s employees had been laid off and still-unconfirmed rumors that NCsoft was planning to sunset the game.

He’s further promised more details on Steam as Carbine nears launch. “I’ll be reaching out to the community next week,” he tweeted.

breetoplay Karl_Hungus ManastuUtakata Bannex19 Yeah, and Carbine’s PR in Pappy’s last letter, left me completely confused. He talks about interesting things for WS, but nothing concrete above what we already know. He doesn’t mention if they’re going to shift the focus to casual content, etc etc.
Ugh.

Karl_Hungus BKone No one is doing fine. Except for Blizzard and a few asian dev studios.

deekay_zero My husband pretty much refuses to play Wildstar because he likes it so much and is too afraid to invest.  He doesn’t want to see his characters he poured hours into go poof.

McGuffn Jack Pipsam It’s a third person team based shooter, it got a lot of hype, players and praise at launch.
Now it has no updates and roughly 200 players.

Speaking of wild speculation…because I don’t have time machine to pop into the future to see studio execs post disclaimers as they did a weekend after the fact? If you asked me toady, I may have given a different answer.
…but you seem awfully obsessed what I said over that. Perhaps you should look why that is bothering you, as opposed to anything I say on the matter. Unless you view me a some weird gaming profit or something. Then I can’t help you there. o.O

Yeah, I made a similar statement when the news broke. If you like the f-ing game, play it. Would rather have an awesome love for a year or two, versus a mediocre one long-term.
