As a parent of toddlers, I have often wondered what games I will be playing with them when they get old enough to want to dive into MMOs (if they ever want to, that is). Considering that during this past year we've seen several kid-friendly titles shut down, I'm worried that there might not be any left in a few years.
Recall that Clone Wars Adventures, Free Realms
, Pirates of the Caribbean Online
, and Toontown Online
have been terminated in the past 12 months and answer me this: Are kids MMOs in danger of dying out? I can take heart that KingsIsle
is still going strong and that LEGO Minifigures Online
is in development, but I don't see a lot of interest in studios making MMOs for the much younger set. What do you think?
