For a while I would receive questions regarding when the Fallout-style MMORPG Grimlands would be released all the time. The post-apocalyptic MMO from Gamigo originally went into closed beta way back in April, 2012, but almost a year into the cbt it didn't seem as if Gamigo was any closer to releasing it. Now news has come that Gamigo is flat out cancelling Grimlands with no plans to restart development.
In a post on Gamigo's Grimlands Facebook page, Gamigo stated that due to "the intensified focus on publishing and distribution and reduction of high-risk development projects" the company decided to not proceed wit development of Grimlands." The company goes on to say "We are deeply saddened that this step had to be taken, as we would have loved to present you the world of Grimlands."
I think I spent a whole 20 minutes with Grimlands back in its early closed beta state and while most MMORPGs do have a variety of bugs during cbt, it was clear Grimlands was still in a very unfinished state at the time. While I am sure the idea of a new Fallout-style MMO not seeing the light of day saddens many, perhaps I can provide some comfort by reminding everyone the upcoming post-apocalyptic survival MMOFPS Survarium is still in the works and looks very promising. Perhaps even more promising then Grimlands in some respects.
For now Gamigo still has plans to continue publishing their other titles including their other upcoming MMORPG Otherland.
