Less than a year after its launch, digital card game SolForge is closing up shop for good. All development on the free-to-play title has halted and the servers will close down on January 31st. The team gave no specific reason for the shutdown other than the project’s scope got to be too big to handle.
“This isn’t the way any of us wanted SolForge to end. Unfortunately, we bit off more than we could chew trying to build a digital game of this scope and have learned many hard lessons along the way that we will apply to future games (including future incarnations of SolForge),” developer Stone Blade said.
The studio did offer a thin ray of hope, saying that it is in talks with partners to take the SolForge IP and possibly bring the game back one day. SolForge was crafted by some of the creators of Magic: The Gathering and featured a card leveling system as a core mechanic. It launched in late July 2016.
