Carbine Studios shutting down
« on: September 15, 2018, 02:55:16 PM »
Haven't seen this anywhere else, so...

Carbine Studios is in the process of closing its doors.  Fifty people are being laid off, and it also means that Wildstar will have its plug pulled.

I heard this on a YouTube gaming channel by sheer accident.  Just as I was considering re-installing the game.   :'(

Wow, never played, but I hate to hear when bad news hits the industry like this. :(

Yeah, that's too bad. WildStar had some great style and fun, with some interesting MMO mechanics.

I enjoyed it for a few months before life took me in a different direction. I had often thought about going back for a second go-around.

I'm glad I at least got a chance to patch, log in, and take some screenies of my characters before the it disappears. That's something I missed on City of Heroes.  :'(
