In today's news of things we were suspicious about -- but didn't really expect to be true, it seems Trion Worlds didn't keep XLGAMES in the loop on their sale to Gamigo after all.

Following the news of the deal between Gamigo and Trion, XLGAMES announced they would be delaying the upcoming ArcheAge update and told players they were working things out in an effort to make sure there was "no harm done." This caused some pause on the part of MMOBomb staff as we questioned whether or not ArcheAge was part of the deal and if so why it hadn't been worked out in the sale.

Based on a post on the ArcheAge forums penned by XLGAMES CEO Jake Song, XLGAMES was as surprised by the move as everyone else. So, as a result, the company is currently in talks with Gamigo and once the paperwork is complete the ArcheAge team will announce a new release date for 5.0.

The note goes on to discuss some of the general issues the developers are trying to address in the game itself as well, with Song stating that he's doing his best to "revitalize ArcheAge".

At the moment, we still don't know where the rest of the games in Trion's library stand. We are keeping an eye out and as soon as we know, you'll know.
