In the many years that we have been running The Daily Grind, one of the most popular topics has been in daydreaming about the return of sunsetted MMOs. Usually, this conversation takes the form of which games we would love to see be brought back online, but today I want to focus on the how.
Let us postulate that one of your favorite retired MMOs will magically come back to life in 2017. How do you envision this happening? Who would run it? Would you be content if the server was simply turned on or would you need further development to be happy? Could this title be profitable in today’s environment?
Walk us through how you see this happening and we will see if the power of wishful thinking actually makes it happen!
