Oh Kartuga, we hardly knew ye.
Today, Innogames announced to its fans that it had decided not to publish Kartuga, and would immediately stop its development. The pirate themed MMO had only recently gotten its open beta sea legs and had a promising future ahead of it. Even Innogames themselves admitted the game did offer stunning graphics and had great potential, but they came to the conclusion that Kartuga does not live up to the high standards of quality they strive for.
Innogames also seem completely focused on only publishing games capable of cross-platform support. Something they felt could not be accomplish in a timely manner with Kartuga.
Players who have unspent gems are able to exchange them for premium currency on other games until August 14th. While there is no official shutdown date yet, the developers have said the game will be available for at least a few more weeks.
For more information regarding the shutdown or to find out how to exchange your unspent gems, be sure to check out the full post here.
Do you feel Kartuga deserved such a fate?
