The Daily Grind: So who thinks Camelot Unchained is really launching next year?


Unchained Games fka City State Entertainment is one of the rare few studios that gets a standard disclaimer in our posts, and for those out of the loop on this, it’s because the last few years of communication from the company have been sketch as heck. Camelot Unchained the MMO has continued to linger far from finished, and its spinoff game averages zero players – both of them disappointments to Kickstarter backers, MMORPG sandbox fans, and anyone with a hope that Mark Jacobs was going to be the last man standing among the old-school MMORPG devs trying restore the genre to its former glory.

So when the studio announced last week that it’s using its latest investment blast to finally get this decade-old MMO to launch next year, I felt pretty bewildered, particularly at how many folks in the broader gaming industry seemed to just take a press proclamation on faith. Either that team has been playing its cards very close to its chest the past few years while trickling out a newsletters with a misleadingly small amount of progress, or… or I don’t know what. CU was supposed to be incredibly ambitious; is that ambition just being scaled back in order to cut loose the albatross ’round CSE’s neck? Ship it and move on?

This Daily Grind is going to be multifold. Do you think Camelot Unchained is really launching next year? If it launches, will you be playing it? Did you back it on Kickstarter, and did you ever get your money back?

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!
