The Daily Grind: What was the most painful MMO sunset of 2020?


We’ve had some brutal years for MMORPG sunsets. But surprisingly, this wasn’t one of them. I mean, yes, we lost games, but not as many, and none of the truly big ones. I mean, sure, bungled games like Crucible made headlines, but how many of you even remember that 2020 was the year Frostkeep shuttered Rend with one week’s warning? Yeah, exactly.

For my part, the loss of MapleStory 2 was probably the most painful sunset of the year. I know it wasn’t huge and was never gonna be as popular as its big brother, but it was adorable, and it was really obvious when Nexon cut off its development and marketing that it was going to axe the game without giving it much of a chance to really bloom.

What was the most painful MMO sunset of 2020 for you personally?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
