While Chronicles of Elyria attempts to keep its community busy and diverted with various events and lore and promotions, the question is, what will the developers be doing to actually develop the MMO (and all of its side projects) in 2019?
Unfortunately, you’re not going to find out much from Soulbound Studios’ end-of-2018 report. Apart from posting a lot of community fluff, the studio only hinted at a few small projects in the works. These projects include better organization of player account inventories, a regular column on the plants and animals of the world, domain and settlement selection, and an “Adventure 0.5.0 production update.”
The studio also says it’s “opened hiring and [is] looking for talented gameplay programmers” to “increase [its] game development velocity.”
Hopefully 2019 will see an uptick of development and fortunes for this title to counter our predictions that Chronicles of Elyria is facing the stormiest future of any MMO right now.
