Ashes of Creation will now self-publish in EU/CIS regions, says its split with My.Games was amicable

Yesterday, Intrepid Studios announced that it would be breaking from its partnership with My.Games and will take over publishing duties for in-development MMORPG Ashes of Creation in both the EU and in the CIS region, an announcement that made the press release rounds initially. Now, a more player-facing statement of the decision has been posted on the game’s website from creative director Steven Sharif, expounding on why the studio decided to self-publish the game in the area:

“At the time, it made the most sense to partner with an established publisher for these regions. As we have grown as a company and have expanded our capabilities it made sense to reevaluate our strategies and ultimately expand the responsibilities of Intrepid Studios to become a global publisher, leading that initiative with bringing excellent service for our playerbase and community management that focuses on respecting our fans.”

Sharif further writes that Intrepid Studios learned a great deal from My.Games and explains that the split between the two companies was an amicable decision, thanking the company for its assistance leading up to the self-publishing move.

The post also features an FAQ that offers some answers for players regarding their My.Games accounts; in short, migration steps for My.Games accounts and Intrepid Studios accounts will be explained later, while players who happen to have both accounts at once will be able to submit a support ticket to have the two merged. There are a few other answers regarding purchasing individual cosmetics and requesting refunds if players don’t want their personal information migrated over, so it might be worth the time to read through the post for all those details.

It’s nice to see them separate from MyCom. That partnership was a major sticking point with the community, especially EU players.

The correct move for sure

They don’t say it anywhere directly, but as they are opening office hopefully (surely?) they will also place the servers in Europe….

Good, Mail.ru are a bunch of incompetent idiots who mismanage all the games and have a very bad game launcher, most people who live in Russian-speaking countries already knew that long time ago.

a very bad game launcher

a malware you mean. Because that’s what it is. To uninstall their stuff you have to remove it manually piece by piece.

They are self-publishing in EU as well. They fully split from My.Games and opening an EU office to handle it.

Really, are you sure, because only CIS countries are mentioned?

Their post on the site mentions EU as well. The article here left it out.

“We have learned a lot from our partnership with MY.GAMES, and we wish our friends there all the best as we have mutually decided to part ways. Looking ahead, we’re excited to announce that Intrepid Studios will be opening European offices in Amsterdam to help support our publishing operations in the EU/CIS regions. We have recently posted open positions for our new EU offices, and look forward to hiring the best and brightest in true Intrepid fashion.”
