Fractured Online Disappears From Gamigo Site, Team Says "No Updates On The Matter At This Time"

Seems like a situation where "no answer" is kind of an answer on its own.

Fractured Online Free Weekend

Just a few days ago we reported on a number of gamigo games moving around to other companies, layoffs being announced at other games, and just a general "bad news" day for fans and employees alike over at some of gamigo's titles.

One item we didn't mention in that original piece was that Fractured Online, the MMORPG being developed by Dynamight Studios, was also removed from the official gamigo games website. We held on that a bit because we were attempting to get information from the gamigo team to see if something had changed but wasn't yet announced.

Having just signed on with gamigo a year ago (literally, a year ago last week was the public reveal), we weren't sure what was going on and wanted official word.

Dynamight Studios seemed thrilled with the partnership, but most of us MMORPG fans, and those looking forward to Fractured Online itself, were INCREDIBLY skeptical of the partnership to say the least. On the Always Online podcast that week, we made those concerns VERY clear.

Even our friends over at MassivelyOP put together the news with a few other weird goodies (seriously, check out their piece!).

Turns out, waiting on an official answer didn't matter. Obviously with the holidays coming up, getting in contact with some of our usual PR people is a bit challenging. We did hear back from the team and honestly, the reply is kind of funny... if it didn't point to the likely sad news most people would speculate. Fractured Online and gamigo's future is wildly uncertain right now, even though the Fractured Online site and the Steam page still bear the "gamigo" name.

The official PR reply right now is, "At the moment we do not have any updates on the matter, but will be in touch as soon as we do!"

Not good news when a game disappears from a publisher's site, that's for sure. There's really only two ways to take that. Either A) the news isn't great but they aren't ready to say it publicly yet, or B) the team literally doesn't know what's going on yet as they weren't in the communication loop. It's unlikely that the game being removed from gamigo's website was just a total accident... but I guess that COULD be "C" if you really want a possible positive here.

We did push to see exactly when an update would be available as removal from the site leads to a certain type of speculation, but we have yet to hear back from the team today. If we do, we'll certainly update this piece.

Gotta say, none of this looks good for Fractured and we hope the team is able to deliver what they hoped to do with their gamigo partnership. Whether you like the game or not, we've always liked the team's passion.

Hey Mike, Thanks for covering this. I've been active with Fractured since beta started in April. Before that, I didn't really know about Gamigo. Now I most certainly do. So the writing on the wall says that Gamigo is done with almost all of their MMOs, Fractured being one of those, yet we can't confirm that because no one actually says anything about it and the game masters and mods on the discord, which is arguably the main communication source, are just volunteers. Fractured's future was always sort of uncertain, now more than ever. I think I speak for the community when I say I most certainly hope there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Hope for the best, expect the worse.
