The whole Trion buyout feels like it came completely out of left field, and we’ve spent the past couple of days just staring and wondering what the heck was happening. Sure, we knew that there were issues with the company because there are always issues with any company, but I don’t think anyone expected that suddenly our faith in the future of RIFT or Trove or ArcheAge would be thrown into question without any warning.
Of course, the question doesn’t mean that everything is already doomed; we don’t know what’s going to happen just yet. It’s just a worry. Personally, my biggest worry is about the future of Trove; while I don’t play Trion’s games, it feels like Trove offers something genuinely difficult to find in other titles in the MMO space, and losing it would be a really deep loss.
But I am absolutely certain that bigger fans of the company’s games have other feelings about which titles would be bigger losses, and today that’s what I’d like to know. Which of Trion’s MMOs are you most worried about in the wake of this buyout?
