The Former Wild West Online Clarifies Its Relationship With Free Reign Entertainment
Ever since its inception, the developers of Wild West Online stressed that the game was not owned by Free Reign Entertainment, the company fronted by the infamous Sergey Titov. Then WWO went belly-up, changed its name to New Frontier, went free-to-play, and now Free Reign owns it. Got all that? Good.
A post on the New Frontier Facebook page last week spelled it all out, saying that WWO used Free Reign's engine but was not developed by anyone at the company. And then,
"After the game had failed, Free Reign took over everything including the development of the game. The development team behind New Frontier is not the same team that worked on Wild West Online, hence the name change on the game."
The Magnificent 5 battle royale mode for the game is still listed as "coming soon," and it's promised that "development of the game will be continuous and the game will remain free-to-play." You can keep up with that development on the New Frontier website.
