Make My MMO: The Crowfall autopsy


Nobody in the MMORPG community was particularly surprised to learn this week that Crowfall’s new – and very quiet – owners have decided to pull the crowdfunded throne war MMO offline later this month as they purportedly put it back into development and “map out the future of the game.” Needless to say, that isn’t filling anyone with confidence, and it’s unclear why Monumental isn’t just keeping the current game online while it works on a new version. Unfortunately, there’s not a whole lot of reason to think the game will ever come back, which is a shame as it raised millions of dollars and had a massive following for years. RIP.

Read on for more on what’s been up with MMO crowdfunding over the last few weeks, plus our roundup of all the crowdfunded MMOs we’re following!

Yes, some crowdfunded MMOs most definitely do succeed. But others crash and burn, and you need to hear about the whole spectrum of games that sought your money early in exchange for the promise of input and transparency. And that’s exactly what Make My MMO does several times a month. Help us keep ’em accountable, would ya?
