CCP Games’ World of Darkness MMORPG Cancelled

It’s been two years since we last heard of World of Darkness, so this was bound to happen. World of Darkness was a vampire MMO game, would feature hand-to-hand combat and would be based on the same pen and paper RPG ruleset system of Vampire: Masquerade. Well, CCP Games revealed today that the game has been cancelled.

Here is what CCP CEO Hilmar Veigar Petursson had to say about this decision:

“The decision to end the World of Darkness MMO project is one of the hardest I’ve ever had to make. I have always loved and valued the idea of a sandbox experience set in that universe, and over the years I’ve watched the team passionately strive to make that possible.”

World of Darkness has been under development for eight whole years as the game was initially revealed in 2006, while the latest in-game footage was unveiled two years ago.

Kudos to Polygon for reporting the story.

All in all, World of Darkness is no more. So let me close this article with some lovely quotes from Arnold Schwarzenegger.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
