Title: End of an Era : Trion sold to Gamigo games
Post by: Requiem on October 23, 2018, 12:23:01 AM
Looks like Trion, and all it's IP's have been sold off to Gamigo. According to reports only 25 of the 200 staff will be kept on during the take over.

XL games own Archeage, so I don't know what will happen with that game, but I do feel bad for the employees and the fans who enjoyed Rift and their other games.

honestly they will probably shut down or just milk the games until they die.

Or turn it into a PC version of a mobile game. That's what happened to STO when that Chinese company took over it.

According to Brasse later on in the thread all the games, including Rift, are staying until said otherwise. Usually when a MMO sunsets, they give you a month or more lead time, with official press release. Rift still managed to make some money I suspect (or if would have died long ago) so it'll still trudge along.

I wouldn't be surprised if Pie alone was paying enough to keep Rift profitable.  I think she still plays it to this day
