Outside of confirmation that CCP Games
is still working on World of Darkness
, news on the game has been hard to come by. Some of the reasons behind that were revealed by senior producer Chris McDonough
in a recent letter to members of the Mind's Eye Society
, a fan group devoted to the tabletop and LARP games in the same IP. While the focus in the letter was not on the MMO, McDonough did still discuss the state of CCP as a company and what it means for the game.
In short, after a difficult financial year, CCP is devoting the lion's share of its resources to ensuring that DUST 514
is a successful game on launch. That doesn't mean that World of Darkness
is being shelved -- McDonough stresses that development is still ongoing -- but it does mean that the company's first priority is elsewhere. How long that will be the case remains to be seen, but if you're hoping for more substantial news on the game this year, the odds are low
