You will never get to play Jumpgate Evolution

There's been rumours around of major Jumpgate Evolution staff lay offs for sometime. When the founder of NetDevil and creator of Jumpgate, Scott Brown left Gazillion last December there really was only one conclusion regarding the future of Jumpgate Evolution.

When you think they could have launched last year but decided to go back to the drawing board because they weren't happy with the game that kind of dedication alone deserved some reward, (when other companies still kick games out of the door in any old state) but sadly it appears not.

so I guess at this point its safe to say we wont ever see Jumpgate evolution release (unless we get another APB style savior?) and that all further development for LEGO universe will stop (as they're being left a very small art team only) well it was only so long befre Netdevil bought the farm After the fiasco of Auto Assualt, I knew it was coming eventually...sad news still

Who ever thought Jumpgate Evolution will ever be released is crazy. They only kept it under pretense development, not to pay damages to Codemasters

Agreed. On all points. I have been hoping for JGE for some time now, however when you sign up for a beta in 2008, and 2011 comes around without any word, you know to finally walk away from the horse laying on the ground.

@BubleFett

Netdevil never hand their hands on it. One of Gazillions other companies are handling that (Secret Identity Studio, the one being Headed by Jeff Lind)

My thoughts to the people that lost their jobs, hope they find new work soon.

This is so sad. I hope the good people at Netdevil find new jobs. And I hope JGE gets sold to a good developer. Regarding Lego Universe, since Lego is the publisher, would they own the rights to the game and be able to seed it to a new developer?
