Earthrise’s reboot is still in limbo (but it isn’t canceled)

    
9

With just about a year under its belt before it was canned in 2011, Earthrise was one of those MMOs that died too soon. However, there was some hope for life after death: The game’s owners sold the property to developer Silent Future, who had vowed to reboot the sandbox title.

This hasn’t quite panned out as expected. While there was some initial movement on the whole Earthrise reboot, including a slot on Steam’s Greenlight back in 2016, the project — and its website — has gone silent ever since.

It would be safe to assume that any further chance of a revival is nearing zero except that the studio did respond to a recent inquiry from MMO Fallout by saying that the game has not been canceled. That’s not quite as good as any specifics about any future plans pertaining to Earthrise, but at least this game isn’t out for the count just yet.

I have to be convinced that the screenshot isn’t from the original Guild Wars…

This is the kind of investigative journalism Silent Future can expect from me after convincing me to put down $20 towards the alpha about five or six years ago.

I was so hyped about this game when it was first announced, but so much time has passed and so little has happened that at this point I don’t even care.

This reminds me of Lime Odyssey and how it shut down in CBT and I couldn’t even get a key… T-T

I got into Lime for like 1 weekend or something.

God was the music good … Everything else was pretty standard Aeria MMO content.

But I do remember the environments being noticeably large.

*edit*
Just some random footage I found that shows how the game was so big, you had underwater shark bosses.

I feel so bad I couldn’t play this game… and why didn’t anyone make a private server???

I remember waiting for this one, as a concept it was good – the execution of the project did have a lot to be desired though

Man…I kept up with this one for a while (IIRC I even tipped off that it was coming back many, many, many years ago!) but I’ve long since written it off. Seemingly nothing has really happened with the game, and it’s so old now that I don’t really see any chance for success for it in the current market.

Such a shame, I remember it being such an interesting looking game.

Save everyone, including yourself, the trouble and just cancel it. You’ll sleep better at night.
