CCP puts an end to World of Darkness development

According to an article by Eurogamer, CCP has decided to cease development of their sandbox vampire-themed MMO World of Darkness.

The game was originally announced in 2010, and has had a pretty shaky development history since then, with rumors of layoffs and development standstills. Eurogamer has now reported that 56 members of the development team have been laid off, with the remaining members having moved on to EVE Online.

The reasons behind CCP’s decision are not too clear, but a spokesperson for the company commented that they “dreamed of a game that would transport you completely into the sweeping fantasy of World of Darkness, but had to admit that our efforts were falling regretfully short”.
