Fans of Stoneblade Entertianment’s free-to-play game SolForge may be getting an extension on their time in the game’s universe. A while back, the game’s developer announced that the game’s development and server maintenance would cease on January 31. Now it appears that thanks to the executives at Grinding Gear Games, that may not be necessary.
A post on the SolForge site revealed that GGG’s Brian Weissman and Chris Wilson are now personally helping to fund a manage a transition from the current servers to a smaller one that will protect everyone’s progress and allow them to continue to play.
The developers do warn that there will be interruptions in gameplay during the transition — and more importantly that while they are hopeful this will make the game more sustainable, there are no guarantees.
