Word to the wise: Don't put "dawn" into any part of your MMO's name, or else it will get hit by the curse of breaking dawn. Just ask Dawntide
, and now, Stellar Dawn
Yes, unfortunately it's true. Jagex
announced that it's suspending development on Stellar Dawn
to make sure the company is in the best position possible by concentrating on Transformers Universe
. While the studio was able to shuffle most of Stellar Dawn's
team around to new positions, the decision still resulted in the loss of 12 jobs.
In a prepared statement, CEO Mark Gerhard
was highly complimentary of Stellar Dawn's
team and progress. "Jagex has always been committed to developing the highest quality games and services. This is not a decision we have taken lightly; the Stellar Dawn
team has achieved a great deal developing the game and should rightly be proud of their achievements so far."
fans might find hope in the language being used by the team in the forum announcement
, as the title's development is described as being "paused" and a "temporary move" instead of being outright cancelled.
